I just got a Wisconsin model SD8 engine at a yard sale. It supposedly was in a golf cart. It has a Delco Starter/generator on it. I can"t find a dipstick and do not know what other type of method they might have used to check oil level. I would love to hear from anyone that knows. I did get it to crank over quite willingly with the plug out. I don"t know if it was getting power to the coil, The plug was not sparking. I didn"t spend much time on it as I had more important things to work on. This is for a summer/fall/winter project. I can"t find a dipstick and do not know what other type of method they might have used to check oil level. I would love to hear from anyone that knows.I only gave $5 for it. if worse comes to worse, I see there appears to be a oil fill plug and could put the correct amount in it and make a dipstick.
Thanks, Roy

Finally got to check. Yes there is a dipstick connected to the square head pipe plug.
Thanks, Roy

Should be a square-headed pipe plug with a dipstick attached screwed in to top of the timing gear cover at the PTO side of the engine.

Look for a dipstick on a plug somewhere first.

But, on a 1940 Farmall A, there is a drain plug at the bottom of engine(for draining) and a plug just above the top of the crankshaft level. We fill the oil until it comes out of the upper plug hole.

That oil fill plug may be where you check the oil level. All of my B&S engines have that feature. Hal

unscrew the filler plug and see if there's a dipstick on it.
