Mine engine has a hand pump mounted on the Stbd side of the engine it draws up thrugh a tube from a fitting at the bottom of the crankcase. The Dipstick on mine is on the port side. Maybe it is switchable, ambidextrous, but I never paid much attention to it. The hand pump works very well, with warm oil, but take quite a it of stroking to get out the +- 13 qts.
I'll take a look at it the next time over.
