B.S. Quantum XM

Hi all, I acquired this Weedeater/Poulan Mower, I'm embarrassed to say I can't find the oil drain plug on 5HP Quantum XM. Anybody able to help me out?

It is located at the bottom of the engine. It may be covered by grime. You will need the appropriate size Allen wrench to remove it.

Thanks Airman! That did it. Odd place, I don't work on mowers much...just the two of had over my entire adult life. And, it's not even a Hex, it's square..but the 3/8" drive part of a socket wrench fits perfect.

I haven't removed one in years and forgot it is a 3/8 square drive. I have a devise that vacuums the oil out. Quick and easy, especially when you do a lot of them.
