Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

Hydraulic system oil is added through the filler cap under the seat . The oil level check plug is a 1/4 inch pipe plug located on the RH side of the axle housing a little ways above the floorboard about in line where your heel would be if you were in the seat

I hope this helped you
