Does an AX291 have a carb drain?

Is there a drain on the carb of an AX291 motor, or do I just run it till it stops?

Here's the page out of my manual. It shows a drain below the carb.

Ha ha! There's the $64 question. I've never seen mine, I guess you'll just have to start removing sheet metal until you get to it.
Be sure to let the rest of us know how you finally get there. A few pictures would be cool.

I would think the carb on the AX291 engine is much the same as mine, with two screws on the bottom of the float bowl. The center one is to remove the float bowl while the one just off to the side is the drain plug. The float bowl is located at the "back" of the engine (towards operator position) and on the operator's left, just beside the valve cover. It is open to the underside and the drain plug is easily removed without removing any panels.

The picture attached shows the two screws, where the one at the bottom is the float bowl attachment screw.

Good luck.
