The motor runs but will not spin out

You either have a bad transmission - worst case - or you have a bad thrust bearing. Remove the belt and rotate the drum pulley CCW. The pulley should push the thrust bearing upwards, releasing the brake, and engage the transmission. If it doesn't you have a bad thrust bearing. It comes as a set, pulley and bearing. It's a easy job. If it is engaging transmission and still no spin then your trans can be bad.

I need to know where the oil drain plug is on a 2002 harley deuce.

A deuce is a member of the Softail family. Look at the bottom of the oil tank from the right side of the bike. Look for a large hose that runs down behind the transmission and continues on down to the crossmember of the frame under the transmission. There's a plug in the crossmember of the frame. Remove the plug to drain the oil.

Good Luck
