Default B400 - overdrive oil

I wanted to check the level of the overdrive oil because it leaks.

The access to the level screw seems to be difficult - any hints?

But what kind of oil needs an overdrive?

Bela ,
as you no doubt know , no Bristol 400's were fitted with overdrive originally and in my opinion not necessary in a well tuned and maintained original car.
What type of overdrive unit have you fitted .
Is the overdrive oil and gearbox oil common to both ?

Hello Geoff

I'll take a picture as soon as possible. There are two separate cases and the overdrive has a screw with a stamp "level" near by.
