CHECKING HPOP RESERVOIR LEVEL?

Happy Winter Solstice everyone! I am finishing the changeout of injectors on my 97 work truck stock 7.3 PS( 358,some odd miles)and am reading procedure on where suggestion is
"fill oil resorvoir with new oil". Which fitting on oil pump do I remove to do this? Am I actually just checking to see if oil level is adequate?
Clueless

you check the resevoir which is on the very front of the motor on top you should see a plug with a square hole that a 1/4 inch ratchet will fit in. remove that and check the oil level in the hpo system

Sorry to hijack, but semi-relevant question:

Is this something I need to keep an eye on, or is the HPOP oil-level only checked when replacing injectors?

no real reason to check it as the lpop keeps it filled when the engine is running. when you change injectors and have to get the air out of the lines it helps to keep adding some oil in there
