If I remeber correctly there is a plug on the side of the case much like a fiil and level check for a manual ttransmission. Check with the manufacturer. Good luck, J.

On my Tecumseh The dipstick should read 3/4" of oil. You will have to create your own dipstick out of something thin and flexible. You will also need to isolate the compressor from the rest of the system before opening the compressor to check the oil level. There should be valves at the compressor to do this.

Definitely replace the drier and as many o-rings as you can. If you ever take the dash out of the car, then also replace the expansion valve.
Typically I've just put the dash back in though the lower parts and centre consul I have yet to do (1962 Bird). Is the drier the cylinder attached to the condenser rad?
