May be under the blade plate under the mower, usually a plug with a quarter inch square drive, you can use a ratchet to loosen it if it is quarter drive, maybe a half inch drive

How to change the oil in my MTD 6.5h Honda yardman


Many mower engines no longer have a drain plug, or the plug is covered by the deck or other components, the best way is to suck the oil out via the oil filler, there are plenty of inexpensive vacume pumps availble that makes the job easy, check out the dealers or e bay.

Describe your Yard - Man 160cc, 21" Self - Propelled Lawn Mower Problem i don't know where oil drain plug is


You'll find most Briggs and Statton Engines have an oil drain plug directly on the bottom of the engine. It is square and can be removed with a 3/8" ratchet with no socket on it (you just stick the ratchet or ratchet with extension right in the hole and turn it CCW. When you put it back in, make it tight, but not too tight or you'll crack the block of your engine (trust me!). Some engines such as the Honda's do not have an oil drain plug and you need to just dump the oil right out of the fill spout. Awkward. Your engine will hold between 20 and 22 oz of straight 30 WT oil; do not overfill it. Put in about 20 oz. and let it sit for a few minutes then check it on your dipstick. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.
PS: Always remove the spark plug wire before working on your engine! Turning the blade by hand could start your engine and cut your hand off!

How to change oil In a craftsman lawn mower, that has a honda engine. Misplaced my manual. Have decided to change my own oil rather than have it serviced every year I was doing a number of lawns so I had...


Look for a drain plug under the deck in the bottom of the engine (under the deck) known as the crankcase housing. Drain plugs come in different forms, but you will know it when you see it. IF there is no plug on the engine bottom, then check for a small plug on the side of the engine (above the deck) with a square head. That would be removed and the mower tilted that way to drain the oil. If no plug on the side of the engine then the oil will have to be drained out the oil filler tube. Remove the dipstick and tilt the mower that way to drain the oil.

How to change the oil in my troy built pont where is the drain plug


Not sure what a pont is, or what motor you have, but on some of the Troy built small engines from Honda the geniuses designed the motor with no drain plug. You have to tilt or flip the engine over to drain oil out the filler

Webb Diplomat 350 Petrol Lawn Mower stops running 10 minutes


The 'DIPLOMAT' series of WEBBs is bad news, its NOT a WEBB! Webb were swallowed by qualcast-atco-suffolk, who dunped Webbs tooling, & dressed up punches & commodores in thin disguises, dumped the briggs & stratten engine for their own alloy job, & charged a rip off premium for the Webb decals!
The qualcast suffolk alloy engine suffers from a WIPAC electronic ignition unit. As it gets old, it fails, sometimes completely, sometimes as it warms up. Once cool, it works for a while again.
Not too hard to replace, but hard on the wallet, £69 genuine, £40 fake! On the whole its not too bad an engine if cared for & oil changed often. better to look on ebay for a cheap used HONDA engine & transplant! R-E-L-I-A-B-L-E !............I did! ( £35 honda gc series, 5,5hp! )

Can't find the oil drain plug on Troy Bilt with 5.5 Honda engine


You may want to look under the deck. They sometimes put them there. And if it is a self propelled, you will probably need to remove or loosen the plastic cover that protects the self propelled belt.

You are looking for a nickel sized plug that has a square peg. Use an extension piece for a socket set if you don't have the proper plug removal tool.

I have a troybuilt push lawnmower with a honda motor, I was wondering where the oil plug was where I can drain the oil.


It is under the mower, you will need a 3/8 ratchet and extension to take it out...make sure NOT to tip the mower over, you will have to raise it, but make sure the spark plug end stays up!!!

Oil drain plug


Drain plug is not necessary. Remove the dipstick and tip the mower to the side the dipstick is on and use the dipstick tube as a drain.
