The valve on my 216 is broken, have to unscrew it from the block to drain the oil. I see p/n 25 755 14 seems to be the common replacement for these engines. Its vertical and not with a 90 degree elbow like the factory. Will these work or - or should I source on OEM piece from the dealer? Last think I want to have happen is it shearing off or causing some other engine fatality problem.

My Kohler CV15 has the same thing. It has never worked very well. I'm going to replace it with a Dranzit. I have Drainzits on all my OPE and it makes changing oil a mess-free snap.

Never did much like those things. Seems they all start to leak sooner or later. When they do I just replace them with a couple of bucks worth of pipe.

I was trying to stay away from something that relied on the engine block threads to service the engine. Would hate to cross thread or have a leak hence the motivation for another solution.

I used one of these on my 216 oil pan after the original broke, and I realized the JD replacement part cost $28.59. You can get one at most hardware stores inexpensively. It makes the oil changes easier than before, and it aims directly between the steering linkages and frame, so a carefully placed drain pan should mean a pretty clean oil change.
