Briggs Stratton Oil ChangeI changed the oil on 7 Briggs engines today, and my shop is a Briggs service agents.1) take HT cap off, and make sure it cant move back (a spark can jump)2) turn machine on its side carb upper most.3) put a little container under the oil filler/dipstick. (a 3.5 hp engine has under a pint in it).4) unscrew filler cap/dipstick and leave till completely drained.5) when finished upright machine and refill with the right oil, (most Briggs engines use SAE30, its a thin oil because there is no oil pump on these small engines, they have a splashier on the big-end) replace dipstick, HT cap and start.6) bobs your uncle. :)
