Valve to drain oil from the drain pipe

1) what is the size and thread used on the Ariens 28 Deluxe 306cc TLC Engine at the drain pipe?
2) suggestions for adding a Petcock/valve on the drain pipe?

Drainzits work great, especially for only $16 at Home Depot! Just did the oil change on my HSS1332ATD with one and didn't spill a drop!

I made it. I don't like the quality of what's out there "pre made". Cost me about $18 with parts from Home Despot. I kept the cap at the end, just in case the ball valve gets hit and opens on accident.


I've done similar on some friends machines.

here is a good one for tecumseh or briggs....both have 3/8 I believe???


Although my tube seems to measure .562 in OD before threads.


Anyone know Drain Hole thread measurement for Tecumseh???

That must make it so easy!!! Like the solidness of it.

Glad you kept the cap... that was my thought if some how valve opened accidentally what could stop it.....Ahhhh Cap.

I would like to do what JSUP did to his but I think with location of Drain tube....I think Drainz it is the call. Hopefully will not have to remove tire any more. Although I just use green lawn mower tube for oil changes on my Tec and it makes it past tire now but doesn't secure well though.
