    Call your local Scag dealer.

    Pump the grease gun until the grease just starts coming out.

    Is engine a 15HP Kohler?
    Know what the oil filter is/looks like?
    Looking from back (where you'd normally stand when operating the mower) towards front, oil filter is located (basically) near left rear corner of engine. Continue up the left side of engine, at a level just below the oil filter, three inches at most.
    You'll see a square headed bolt, on the side but very near the bottom of engine. It's also just about an inch above the surface of the deck.
    Just below square headed bolt is about a 2" round hole in the deck.
    Remove bolt, drain oil.
    There is also a similar bolt (just smaller) below the oil filter, remove this bolt before removing filter, it drains oil out of filter.l
