Question about Craftsman 26 Hp 54" Deck Yard Tractor
I changed the oil on my DGS 6500 for the first time.....what a mess!! I put the extention hose onto the drain port, but when I tried to get the oil to drain the whole plastic quick connect came off and the oil started to drain all over my garage floor!! I put it back on but now I have a slow drip. Craftsman could have put a more durable petcock type drain on these tractors!! Any Ideas on what to switch the factory assembly out with to keep it convenient, but stop the leak?? Thanks in advance for any helpful suggestions!
I think you pulled too hard on the plastic part of the drain spout. Your supposed to open the cap, put the drain hose on the end, turn it to the left and pull out slightly, maybe like a 1/4 ". Sounds like you pulled the plastic spout completely off. To close it, you push it back and turn it to the right to lock it and replace the cap. Sounds like you don't have the pins on the metal part that's screwed into the oil pan lined up with the slots in the plastic spout. They work very well when used properly, but they can be pulled off.
