 Where did they hide the coolant fill cap?

I just bought a used 2005 Gator HPX and I would like to check the coolant level but I can't find the cap! The JD manual I downloaded is apparently for another model because it says to raise the hood. However, I don't think my hood woul raise without some major plastic damage (thinking maybe jaws of life?). I will get up with a dealer later but thought I would give this site a try.
Thanks

I am not sure the model gator we have but it is air cooled. The access to its engine is raise the bed. Hope that helps.

Thanks kt. Mystery solved with a trip to the dealer. My HPX has a cab. The bottom support for the windshield must be removed to access the radiator and brake master cylinder. Duh! There was no apparent way to raise the hood with the windshield closed and locked.
