Is their an oil cap under neath lawn mower that can be used to empty oil?

Good question. Unfortunately is varies. Some mowers have a Plug underneath ( look at motor casing , past the blade). Some have a metal tube or a small plug on the side of the engine very close to where the Engine mounts to the deck.
Some just want you to pour the old oil out the Fill.

Pouring straight gas in a 2- cycle mower usually give what results

If you ran it with straight gas more than likely you scored the piston. And cylinder up n now it wont run.

How do I drain the oil on a Briggs & Stratton Troybilt 725 series 190cc push mower?

  • 1) Lay your mower on its side.

  • 2) Find a square bolt head protruding from under the mower engine. Adjust the crescent wrench to the size of the bolt. Turn the bolt counter-clockwise until the bolt comes out and oil begins to drain out.
  • 3) Grab the square-headed bolt and quickly lay the mower over the oil capture pan. Wait about a minute to allow all the old oil to drain out of the engine.

  • 4) Prop the mower back on its side and tighten the square-headed bolt back into the oil pan hole on the base of the mower engine.
  • 5) Return the mower to its upright position. Unscrew the oil dipstick. Read your owner's manual for the proper amount of oil to add. If you no longer have your manual then slowly add the oil to the engine by pouring it through the funnel and into the oil dipstick hole. It usually take 20 ounces to fill a small mower engine, so pour in some oil and check the oil level with the oil dipstick occasionally until the oil is to the FULL line on the oil dipstick. Screw the oil dipstick back in once you have enough oil in the mower engine.

    Where is drain plug for oil on Troy bilt Tb230

    It does not have a drain plug. You can remove the dip stick and tilt the mower to pour out the oil, or you can use one of those hand pump syphon units to pump it out.

    It wont start. Fuels good. Gets a spark, although plug looks oily. Air filter was dirty, have new one. Still wont start with filter off. Tried starter fluid. Manual says maybe excess oil in engine. If so,...

    If you have no sign of life with starter fluid, there's no spark in the cylinder.

    If the plug is oily, it may spark in free air, but not under compression. Try a new plug first.

    Excess oil won't prevent the engine from starting, but it will spew oil everywhere if it's overfilled. Just check the level with the dipstick (on level ground), and pour any excess out of the filler tube.

    Where is the oil drain plug

    You probably dont have one!

    The best way to drain is to warm up the engine *(to suspend the dirt and metal and get the oil flowing) Then tip the mower to the side with the oil filler with the dipstick removed. The oil just pours out!
    Get a dog dish sized bowl and catch the waste oil for disposal.

    Good luck and be careful!
