The Briggs and Stratton motor does not have a drain plug on the bottom of the mower.
Today when you have your mower serviced at a repair shop they don't drain the oil. They **** it out of the fill tube with a vacuum. Since you don't have an oil vacuum just remove the dipstick and tip the mower over to drain.

Brand new mower cranks but won't turn over. Checked battery and spark plugs, all good. Where can I find an mage of the fuel pump to ensure it is installed correctly?

it is cranking but not running is the correct terms
there are several safety micro switches on the mower and all have to be in the correct positions to get it to run
seat -- you have to be in the seat
brake --you have to have your foot on the brake
blade drive --you have to have the drive in neutral
oil in the sump--- oil level switch is off if no oil in sump
There would have been an operators manual with the new machine so read it fully first as it not a case of get on and go

Oil leak on deck of Lawn Mower

Because you mentioned the smoke and hard to start it could be that the engine is flooding or overfilled. Check for fuel in the crankcase. Be sure cranckcase is not overfilled. An engine with too much oil will force excess oil out somewhere. If the mower has been turned on its side lately it could have put oil in places that it should not be and its trying to burn off this oil. Be sure your air filter is not saturated with oil or fuel.
If all that checks out we will look for oil leaks.
As far as oil leaks go the three most likely places for your engine to leak are from the head gasket, dipstick tube seal, or the sump gasket.
Check for proper torque on the head bolts ( 125 inch pounds). Headbolts can come loose over time. After that check that the seal at the bottom of the dipstick tube is in good shape and a tight fit. This seal usually leaks when the engine is running because at rest the oil level is just below this seal. Lastly, if everything else checks out then the sump gasket is leaking. To replace the sump gasket drain oil from motor and remove air filter. remove blade and self propel belt. remove engine stop cable. remove the three motor mount bolts from under deck and remove motor. place on work bench upside down. some fuel may run out carb or tank cap. remove sump bolts from bottom of motor and remove sump. Do not remove governor gear or cam gear from cranckcase. At this time it will be obvious where the gasket has failed. Remove old gasket. It may need to be scraped off. Take care to keep material from going into crankcase and clean out any that does fall in. install new gasket and torque sump to proper specs and reassemble.

My mower is spitting oil all over the driveway and smoking. The pull cord will not pull

It is important not to over fill the sump with oil, only fill to the max mark on the dip stick, if you have tipped the mower up it may have pushed oil up the engine breather and into the air filter box, if the paper filter is now soaked in oil you will need to replace the filter.

How much oil does the sump require in a talon AM3050 lawn mower? Can't find my manual


It's very difficult to find information for this specific mower, however, most petrol mowers have a reservoir size of 1 pint / 0.5 litre. You should have a dipstick for checking the oil level anyway.

Basically, I suggest you drain the sump and add 0.5 litres of oil to ensure that the machine is neither low on oil or overfilled. Then call/email the manufacturer on Monday for clarification and/or a new manual.

Oil dripping on push mower deck

maybe from spilling that would be the best case. the worse case could be the sump gasket could have a tear in it and that would have to be replaced..good luck

I need to know how to take out the camshaft and how to put in a new one on a 15 horse poulan rider

you must remove engine from unit. then loosen rocker arms and remove push rods. remove oil sump from bottom of engine. use a screwdriver to push lifters up,(a bit of grease helps them to stay up, very helpful at reassembly) and remove camshaft.

Husqvarna YTH2448 engine leaking oil

That sounds like the sump gasket is leaking, sometimes the briggs machining at the sump and head areas are a little rough and a bad fit can allow the gasket to blow,if it is leaking it is actually sucking air in rather than pushing oil out while it is running. You would have to drain oil, remove the engine turn it upside down,remove the oil pump cover plate( 3 small screws) pull oil pump rotor and drive shaft out,remove sump bolts,replace gasket and reassemble.Be sure to use a light coat of gasket sealer like black silicone.
