later models have a combined drain/ level plug, earlier models use one of the screws that hold the case on, sorry I can't recall which one it is but someone will I'm sure

1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

On Erling's home page, from which you probably found the forum, there is a link to the '54 A10 manual. follow this link,, to get to page 21 where the correct overflow and drain screw locations are shown.
