Back in the day they were filled with kerosene. As to how? Kind of hard to say sight unseen. If you google Compass fluid there is some info there including a rather stern warning about older compasses using radium based paint and it leaching into the fluid...................Bob

You might try the FBO (fixed base operator) at your local airport. Surely there will be an old airframe and powerplant mechanic who can answer your questions.
