Hey Bill,
My dads 41 model B has a oil check on the left hand side just behind the hand start flywheel and of course at the proper hieght for the oil level. Don't know for sure about all of them but dads B has a hex shaped fitting with a plug in the end of it. Just loosen and see if it drips, if not add oil till it does.

The oil check for the engine is under the clutch, a hex type nut, screw it out a ways and oil should drip from the fitting. If not, add oil in the large pipe type filler on top of the case by the clutch untill oil does drip out the fitting below the clutch. Rear and tranny fill to level with the pipe plugs opening with gear oil.. Drain engine oil on bottom by oil filter, replace filter be CERTAIN not to overtighten filter.

That is on my 1948 styled A, don't know about unstyled but probably about the same.

Most 2 cylinder John Deeres use a drip type oil check. A hex nut is turned out with a wrench, then if the oil drip and dribbles out of the hole in the check, your oil level is ok. The device is either on the fly wheel side of the main case or on the clutch side. Depends on the year. It is parrallel to ground and about 2.5 inches long. Very hard for me to describe, look for something sticking out of the case that is different from any hex head device you've ever seen. That will be it.
