The engine you think you have is substantially different from other Type 4 based engines, and it's unlikely to be in your car. Let's see a picture of the top of the engine .........

See the red rectangle on the drivers sidewall? Is the emissions sticker under the red paint? Try to clean the sticker carefully, I used brake cleaner, and see what it says.

It is, indeed, a Vanagon motor. Prone to meltdowns when the EGR system is disabled. In this case, removed. Probably be OK with carbs, probably not with FI. How do you add oil? Vanagons used a lower block mounted oil filler unit, which would interfere with the alternator and the tin. I see they solved the dipstick issue with that contraption sticking way up in the middle of the engine compartment. Interesting ...................

If you notice there is a rubber line about 1/2" in diameter near the coil, its screwed into to the top of the engine case I'm assuming that's where you could add oil...definitely strange. The more I investigate the more I think Id be better off trying to find the correct engine.
