Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
Your Briggs&Stratton engine's drain plug is on the bottom side of the engine. It has a 3/8" square recess in the plug. Most modern mowers have a cover on the bottom for the self propel belt. You can remove the blade and cover, or you can drain thru the filler tube. Most repair shops drain thru the filler. To do this, you will need a small drain bucket and a pickup truck or outdoor table. Warm up the mower, then turn it off. Place the mower on the tailgate, or table and then place the push handle on the ground. This should position the mower where the spark plug is pointed straight up. Put your bucket under the dipstick tube and quickly remove the dipstick. All of the oil will quickly drain thru the filler tube into your bucket. Have some newspaper and or rags handy to catch any stray oil. After it has drained, put the mower back on the ground and refill with a good quality SAE HD30 weight motor oil. It only takes about 20 ounces to fill. Wipe and check the dipstick oil level 2 times before starting the engine.
