    There is a dipstick on the drivers side of the unit. Small plug, unscrew and check the level.

    The prior owner (Jetmech) sent your Jet-a-Way to Duane for a rebuild...(very little time on that thing) other then checking the oil it should be fine for years of service.

    It's not a dipstick, it's an oil level hole like on a differential.

    Fleet, that's a new one on me. Guess we'll have to wait for the "D"man to show up.

    Mines got a site hole too, fill it let it sit and settle, then recheck fluid level.

    The early models had three holes in the case. Top hole at 11:00 o'clock is the fill hole on all models. The side hole at 2:00 o'clock is the check oil level hole on all models. The early models had another hole at 5:00 oclock that the spacer pin went in to. At serial #4050 we stopped putting the pin hole in the bottom and moved it to the 2:00 o'clock position. This pin is a must to hold the bearing spacers in place. This threaded pin also serves as a dip stick. As long as you can stick it in, (not screw it in), and touch oil, the oil level is okay. Hope that clarifies the issue.

    gear oil ... Your unit is good to go charlie ... maybe 1/2 an hour of run time on it.Contact Duane ... they can send you the correct fluid.
