I'm guessing a 633a with high and low.  There isn't a good way to check the oil. Just change it. 5 qts of sae-30 oil non-detergent.

i thought that it was 2 qts but mine may be different... it was empty it is 3 speed with high/low that was dry dry dry. took it apart... seemed ok. the needle bearings that the shafts ride on where stuck. WD 40 loosened them up. i used a blend of motor oil/gear oil and STP oil treatment for all the years it was ran dry. amazing how ppl can SEE the little 1/2" NPT 90* elbow sticking up with plug in it and NOT REALIZE... IT TAKES OIL IN THERE... ANY OIL is better than NO OIL. if overfill it... it will just leak out the axle shafts out of generic 44mm 25mm (1") x 7 double lip sea... indicating it needs a new seal that is why the gear oil/STP oil treatment in the transaxle so it lasts a good long time.

i write on the thing... CHANGE Transmission oil every 2 years of 100 hours HERE!!!! with arrow pointing to the 90* elbow facing UP... i put a 6" nipple in it, cocked it bck and put a 1/2" collar for the funnel to fill the final drive on the what cld be a nice machine that will last many more years... with FRESH motor/gear /STP oil in the transaxle l
