Briggs & Stratton Engine Oil Drain kit for simple, safe and clean removal of oil from all types of engines.
Step 1: Getting started.
Start the engine and run it until it is warm. Stop the engine. Warning: Be sure to disconnect the spark plug wire, and secure it away from the spark plug to prevent accidental starting. Clean around the oil fill and drain plug area to prevent dirt and debris from falling into the crankcase. Remove the dipstick, if equipped.
Step 2: Draining the oil
Remove dipstick, wipe off, and set aside. Feed hose down dipstick tube until it bottoms out in the sump. Pump until oil ceases to come through the tube.
Step 3: Engines with oil filters.
If your engine has an oil filter, replace it at least once per season. Replace the oil filter by twisting counterclockwise on the body, using a filter wrench or pipe wrench. Examine the sealing surface on the oil filter adapter for debris or gasket material. Lightly oil the filter gasket with clean engine oil. Instal a new filter, screwing in by hand until the gasket contacts the filter adapter (see photo at right). Tighten the filter an additional 1/2 to 3/4 turn.
Step 4: Fill with new oil.
Pour in the correct amount and approved type of oil for your engine, based on this oil capacity chart , or your operator manual. If you have two oil fill plugs (normally yellow or white in colour) on each side of the engine, either one can be used to fill the engine with oil to the correct level. Please do not fill the engine with oil without using the correct measuring device as illustrated in your operator’s manual.
