jimmyb's Useful Tips

Here is a quick step-by-step for changing your garden tractor's oil.
Hope your experience is less interesting than mine...

Steps to changing oil in a garden tractor:

1. Put drain pan under petcock.
2. Open petcock and remove oil filter.
3. After oil is drained, close petcock and put on new, oil-filled filter.
4. Check oil level.
5. Go mow lawn.
6. Drive back to barn an hour and a half later and realize you never removed oil drain pan used in step 1 from underneath the tractor. The plastic pan is now mangled beyond recognition.
7. Cuss.
8. A lot.
9. Spread 25 lbs of oil-dri on the floor to clean up the Exxon Valdez-esque spill you created.
10. Cuss some more.
11. Drink a beer.
