Oil change on B&S Intek 305?

I bought myself a used Little Wonder blower with an Intek 305 10HP engine. I'm good enough for the basics, but not much more so forgive the newbie question.

It has two oil fill plugs, one on each side. I do not see a separate oil drain. I'm not sure how to change the oil in this thing. Do I just unscrew one of them and tip it over like a push lawnmower? Or is there more to it?

The small square-headed bolts at the bottom of the crankcase in both of your left pictures are the oil drain bolts. Use whichever drain and fill that is most convenient to access.

Re: Oil change on B&S Intek 305?

The only stupid questions are the ones you need answers to, but don't ask.

We were all there once... welcome to MTF.

PS: Warm the engine up before draining the oil, and remove one of the fill plugs when draining to speed the drip. Drain plugs need to be tight enough, no tighter, when replacing.
