How to change the oil in Craftsman 106.152540 compressor

Craftsman 106.152540 oil drain plug
I have my Dad's old (c. 1970ish) Craftsman 106,152540 tank mounted compressor like the one in the photos on this webpage:
Works fine, but the tank was been patched years ago and is leaking again. I have been restoring it, mainly just cleaning it up, and I bought a new "remote" tank that I can hook up to the unit now that I cut the tank away from the compressor/motor/control assembly, but I was wondering how to change the oil in the compressor. The compressor has a "plug" at bottom on the side and a red, square head plug on the bottom on the back side (fill port?), just not sure what type and how much oil to put in as there doesn't appear to be a dip stick anywhere.
What do you think?
