Wanted to ask: Looks like my oil drain plug is on the front of the tractor behind the grille (square head), or am I missing something. Could be a mess draining the oil this way. Are these usually valved and piped ?
On the P218G the oil drain is on the right side of the engine. (Looking at it from the seat) There is a hole in the frame below and in front of the oil filter and the drain is through that hole. It is a brass drain but that is where the hole in the oil pan is.
