Does anyone have any suggestions on how to drain the oil from a DEK CH1 wood chipper with having it run all over the place
it is no car.
but that is okay
what engine is there ,name and HP
we all been there, for what 50 years, Lawn toys. etc.
tillers, mower and the endless list
the maker of the engine had no idea of where it will be used. ever.
so they guess. then the tool maker don't care,so there is fault 1.
what I do is drain it out any way you can, even unmount the engine then add and extension pipe to the drain and cap the end.
do not assume it is metric, are you USA or not?
of wrong and you cross thread it , DOOMED
what engine is there matters, most , makes name and the model is there on the plate (data plate) tells exact engine
and there are manuals on all engine to find for free googled.
or at makers site like briggs or Koler. or others.
10 years old says the manual dek
this a china made chipper, as IN NO ENGINE NAME, 420cc?
15HP, sure china engine.
if use that will be pure metric end to end.
I can not ask china what that drain plug is, lacking speak Chinese me. I had so scrap all my ,engine to dump and install real briggs.
the parts are H3LL to source. and crude like that recoil thing.
it ,may be m12 ISO straight thread tapered like our NPT.
1.5 pitch.? strait.
taper is 1:16 taper
totally not NPT USA imperial.inches.
in the usa the oil plug is NPT, what china uses, ive not clue at all
but id use all 3 of my thread gauges to measure pitch or TPI
or if not tapered all metric.
