    We purchased the special oil drain valve to replace the current one on our exmark w/kawasaki to keep from spilling every change-the problem is we cannot thread it in due to the fact the nozzle sticks off-contacts the metal engine support, making it impossible to thread it in. It almost turns except it contacts the sides of the hole the oil is suppossed to drain through. How can I get it on??

    Loosen engine mounting bolts, pry engine over to side slightly, thread in drain valve, re-tighten engine.

    All set.
