Question about Garden
Sandy you can either drain the old oil from the spark plug socket which would be easier or the oil fill point. Remove the spark plug and tilt mower foward getting someone to hold a pot under it. When it's finished draining only put the same amount of oil back in (fresh) When you have done leave the mower somewhere level for a few hours and then start it. It may smoke for a few minutes.

There should be a drain plug on the underside of the mower deck. Raise that side of deck, remove the plug and drain the oil. Replace the plug and add new oil. Hope this helped.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info, you where right on the money.. I finally found it, its on the right side if you were sitting on mower. Thanks again!"
Hi and welcome to FiXya. I am Kelly.
The 650 series engines are a splash oil lubricating system 6.5 Hp engine. There is not an oil filter on this engine.
The manufacturer specs on this engine state to do the first oil change after 5 - 8 hours of use and then at 50 hour intervals there after.
You should use SAE 30W oil for your engine and if you use "synthetic" oil, it does NOT change the interval period.
Here is the actual engine operators manual:
Oil change procedure is on page 10 of the manual.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Briggs lists it as .006 - .010 on this 6 HP L-head engine. The .010 width can easily be attained by using a standard sized business card as a feeler gauge (and it doesn't stick to the magnets in the flywheel). I double up the card, loosen the coil and let the magnets in the flywheel draw the pickup legs in until they press on the card, tighten up the retaining screws (threadlocker is optional) and your air gap is set.
