Are you serious?

Drain oil with help of a suction pump

Hi, I see no one has offered any help so I'll put my 2 cents worth in. I have an oil changing suction pump from Lowes (about 30 bucks) and it's a life saver.I have the same issue on a push mower.I put the whole mower on a work bench put the hose in the oil filler and give the suction pump a few a pumps and the oil just flow out. No mess at all.
Hope this helps.LiquiVac Small Engine Oil Changing System part no.141690

My Honda uses the same hole to fill or drain, just tip it over and dump the oil into something, they probably save a whole $0.05 by not putting in a drain. Have a good one. Geo

If you tip it, just pull the air filter out first so that it doesn't get soaked with gas from the carburetor. No need to drain the carb.

The oil filler is on the other side so no need to remove the air filter. Have a good one. Geo

Thank you everyone. Tipped it on its side and drained it. Not so bad. Could have been much more messy. Thank you.
