YS240TB Auger Gearbox Oil

Does anyone here know how to check the oil level for the auger gearbox on a YS240TB? The box looks very different than a 624 or 828 (it's pointy in the front). The only plug I can see is on the left side near the bottom of the box (drain plug?) so I'm guessing you have to drain it, tip the blower on its side and refill with a prescribed amount of 80-90 but I don't know how much oil to refill.

Also, if anyone needs some traction drive oil (Shimpo TD-22) I have a couple spare quarts that I purchased last winter.
