Where's the Oil Fill

Postby Hickup » Sun Feb 17, 2008 1:24 pm

Ok I cant figure out where to fill the oil after I have changed it. I always drain all the oils to check make sure they have clean oil in them but for the life of me I cant find the fill on my 1940 A. Please help. Thanks

In the vent on top of the rocker cover. It sticks up through the center of the hood.

I don't know the amount, but should be 4 1/2 quarts approximately. check the level by opening the petcocks on the side of the crankcase pan. Oil should run out the bottom one (minimum level). Top one is maximum level.
