    The plug about halfway up the housing is used to check the level of the gear lube. Make sure it is at least as high as the plug. I think it uses 80-90 gear oil.
    Low gear oil is not good--I once had an incident and stripped the gears. Ended up buying a new pump. Oil had been slowly leaking around the shaft seal for about a year.
