I know that this topic has been tossed around many times, but when i searched I did not find a thread specific to changing the oil on the Briggs motor. Has anyone found a better method for draining the oil on the Briggs motor than the one described in the owners manual? I tried using the small short plastic tube and it slipped off when I tried to position the flow to the pan and made a complete mess of everything. I had motor oil all over the engine deck and on the rails below and even on the drive belt and pulley, it was a complete disaster. I thought about installing a piece of hydraulic hose like my Dixie had and drain the oil out the back of the machine. I was hopeful maybe someone else had a better idea or possibly a solution. For a really great machine this is the one area that sure could use some additional engineering work. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
