Did that and couldn't see empty, partial filled, or 1.5 quart input levels. Too old to remove plastic sight glass, I'm thinking. A car holds X amount of oil, isn't there a typical fill capacity amount on this compressor? I'm going to try and make a "make-shift" dip stick, and that may become my new name when I light it off. Thank you for responding.

take a strong light and open the oil fill and shine the light in there to see if it will be visible in the sight glass...
