Where is drain plug to change oil 875 Briggs's and Stratton on my scottbonner mini rider

Most B & S engines have a drain plug at the bottom of the engine underneath . It is usually a square looking nut different from the rest. Check on the side of engine as well for a square looking nut as well.

Show me where the plug is for the oil change

The plug is on the crankcase - the oil pan. You will find it on the bottom of the oil pan, or at the bottom edge -front, side or rear.
Depending on what sort of vehicle you own, the plug may either be a square peg, a normal 'nut shape or it may be a recessed fitting - square or hex.

Do you need a special tool to change to oil filter

Yes, but its not that special. Available from BMW parts specialists in the UK (motobins, motoworks etc). Dont try to remove the filter without one. The filter is recessed into the sump, and prevents access with a strap wrench. Dont be tempted to put a screwdriver thru the filter either.

Oil change on a tundra

No special wrench needed for filter.
The oil filter is located in the front of the engine on the right side, down at the bottom.
It's easier to change the filter by taking of the front skid plate underneath. You'll need a 12mm socket to take it off.

If you try to get it from the top, you'll get oil all over the skid plate and have a big mess to clean up. Plus, you may damage the radiator by leaning on it.

Unable to remove power steering hose where it connects underneath

They make special wrenches for removing these kind of lines, there should be 2 parts to that line, a bigger nut and a smaller nut, the smaller nut threads into the bigger nut, 2 different size wrenches are needed for this removal, go to your local parts store and explain what your trying to do, these guys will sell you the proper wrenches for the job and the proper replacement part, its not a hard job but pay close attention wehere everything goes back as your removing the defective part.. good luck....

Wrench support

impact wrenches are often misused by those who don’t know about their special needs. First of all, it is very important to be careful when tightening a nut or bolt with an impact wrench! Cross threading can occur very easily; a novice may also over-torque a bolt or a nut if they don’t know when to stop. To prevent such problems, always be sure to hand-tighten every nut or bolt before using the impact wrench; if you try to start the nut or bolt with the impact wrench, you won’t be able to feel if the threads are crossed. If the impact wrench is not torque controlled – meaning it will stop when the nut or bolt is tightened to a certain torque – you will need to go slowly, and periodically check the torque value of the nut or bolt to make sure you haven’t tightened it too far.
