Changing the Engine OIl The engine oil and oil filter should be changed after the first 8 hours of operation, and after every 100 hours of operation thereafter. WARNING: If the engine has been recently run, the engine and surrounding metal surfaces will be hot and can cause burns to the skin.

See Figure 18. • After the oil has finished draining, push the oil drain valve back in, rotate it clockwise to lock the valve closed. Re-cap the end of the oil drain valve to keep debris from entering the drain port. IMPORTANT: Always change the oil filter when performing an oil change on your tractor’s engine.
