Typically, however, on vertical shaft engines, the oil drain plug is located beneath the engine block near the crankshaft. To remove the square plug, all that is required is a standard size 3/8″ ratchet and extension (no socket).
One way to remove the gas is to use either a hose to siphon off the gas or a baster/pipette to remove the gas from the lawn mower gas tank to a gas can. Alternatively, the fuel line connecting the fuel tank to the carburetor can be disconnected at the carburetor and fuel emptied into a gas can.

The average adult needs about 2,000 calories per day. In a 2,000 calorie diet, women can have 5 to 6 teaspoons of oil a day. Men can have 6 to 7 teaspoons. Measuring teaspoons of oil can help you know how much oil you get from foods.
But excess oil in the engine will cause excessive pressure in the crankshaft component, which will cause leak. If the leak spreads to the flywheel, oil will contaminate and damage your car transmission.
If you notice leaks from the engine, this can also be a sign that there`s too much oil in your lawn mower. If this is the case, you need to clean the leaking oil running down its side. A low-level hum from the engine or even white smoke coming from it can indicate too much lubricant.

Where is drain plug for engine oil – Briggs & Stratton Gas Pressure Washer 20244
ANSWER : If you are refering to the engine, the drain plug is on the underside above the pump. Sometimes it’s located on both sides at the very bottom where the engine is bolted to the frame. It may have both of these drains, but the one on the side you can’t get to due to the frame being in the way so this is why they put them in two different spots. I hope this helps.
