Awesome info thepumpguysc! Here's a page from the owner's manual showing a level plug also. What might it be for if you're supposed to fill it up to the filler plug? The service manual calls the filler plug the Filler/Breather Plug.

This page from the service manual is what is confusing me. In the photo it calls the filler plug the "filler plug/breather".
The owner's manual says until it comes out the breather pipe. Is the breather pipe the level plug?

I've set many engines with them running. Put clothes pin on rocker arms if oil splashes a lot. First time I was 9 years old and we had a 47 Willy's pickup with a 144 cu in Ford falcon engine with solid lifters. So old the fuel pump was also a vacuum pump that made the wipers work. Later we found a Thunderbird, 81 model that was rear ended with 17,000 miles. That truck was powerful then, with 5.13 differential gears. I bought a 12v wiper kit from good ole J C Whitney catalog, boys, we was cooking with grease then. Had a under dash heater. One of them rear seats out of a bronco fit just right. Had a big chunk of family land we could hunt on. I mean thousands of acres of woods. Roads and right of ways all over, three big ponds and a large creek to fish all summer. Creek was big enough for a boat. We had run of the place.
