Roper Snow Shark Model 605

Today I acquired a Roper Moto-mower model 605-200 Snow Shark 5/20 snowblower. After rebuilding the carb and rewiring the ignition I got spark and combustion. The unit works well but I am wondering if the oil is filled through the drain plug or is there a fill cap I am blind to?
How much oil does this Tecumseh motor take?
Any ideas?

I have never seen an engine filled through the drain bolt. I think you must be blind. Some have short dipsticks or just covers that are low on the bottom of the engine.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

The most typical fill and drain holes found on small engines are as depicted in the top photo. To fill with oil you simply unscrew the cap, add oil until it reaches the top of the threads then replace the cap. Some engines might have a short dip stick on the end of the cap to show you the proper level. If your engine doesn't have a removable cap then it would have a fill tube similar to the second photo. Under the cap would be a long dip stick and you add oil through there. Either way make sure your engine is level when checking the oil.

As for the drain, instead of a simple plug it might have a short tube with a cap on the end to extend the drain beyond the chassis.
