There should be a drain plug on the side. Usually where the oil goes in by the dipstick, it will be a square headed pipe plug. Also check the bottom of the engine for pipe plugs into the case. These will have a recessed square opening that a 3/8" ratchet or extension will fit into.

My guess, without seeing the engine would be a seal or gasket is bad. Use Gunk brand degreaser to clean the engine. Start it up after that with the engine cover off and watch for leaks.

What type of oil do I use for Craftsman 42" Briggs & Stratton 17.5 hp Gas Powered Riding Lawn Tractor for oil change


Only use SAE 30 if using conventional oil. Briggs is real specific about that. I highly recommend using synthetic oil in ALL lawn equipment. You can use a multi-viscosity oil like SAE 10W-30 if you use synthetic, but straight 30 weight if using conventional. The brand is up to you.

Changing the oil filter on a lawn tractor


If it is a screw on type oil filter, apply a film of oil on seal, then screw on. If you want to, go ahead and pour some oil in the filter, in my opinion the oil will circulate faster if there is some oil already in the filter.
