Kwik-way FWS boring bar advice needed

I just picked up this kwik-way fws as my first boring bar. It came with the stand and a pretty much complete toolkit. I also got the manual but it’s kind of beat up and hard to read. When I picked up the bar there was oil all over the table. It has been sitting for a year or more so I wasn’t sure if it was gear oil or what but it was a great price so I just bought it. Before I start running it I want to go through everything and make sure it’s good. What kind of oil do you guys reccomend. The book just says 30 weight motor oil. Also I’m not sure how to check the oil level. On the side there is a hole that says oil but it does not seem to come out. The book says the oil fill is right in front of the motor, it looks like I might need to take the motor off to fill the transmission with oil. If it is leaking oil I heard Coder parts should be my place to buy? Any other advice or books out there on these boring bars? Thanks
