1988 trailboss 250 4x4 gear pattern

hello i just purchased a 88 250 trailboss 4x4, never had one it needs a little work and ill be fixing it up. can anyone tell me what position the shifter should be in for 2 wheel and for 4 wheel drive, it says on the side on demand but i dont see a button to engage 4 wheel, i know there are 4 slots for the shifter starting from the top. obviously i know when its in neutral and reverse but not 2 and 4 wheel drive. also where is the filler hole to put oil in the bottom engine, i see the hole for trans but not engine.im not an idiot just never owned one of these. thanx

OK the gear selector is all the way forward is high range and all the way back is low range. There is no 4x4 selector because it senses slippage in the rear wheels which automatically engages the 4 wheel drive. it is 100 % mechanical unlike the newer one which r controlled by a magnetic coil. There is no oil the the crank case of this engine because it is a 2 cycle and the lubrication comes from the oil mixed with t he gas. I hope I have answered your questions.
