Hi Terry, the dipstick can be accessed beneath the rectangular rubber plug
which is just forward of the console on the upper surface of the tunnel.
Sometimes it takes a bit of a pull to get the dipstick out.
I made a special tool for removing the overdrive drain plug but I believe
one is available from British Too however their site is down at present.

Sorry to bother all with questions but having trouble accessing archives.
Changing the gearbox/OD oil in a BJ8 and want to know if center console has
come out to get to the dipstick. Also, as I have the notched type of OD
plug I'm wondering if there are any tricks to removing it as I'm reluctant
proceed with the hammer/blunt instrument method.
Thanks, Terry Coll '64 BJ8
