I've been looking all over the thing with a flashlight, and groping around underneath, and in the corners, and I'll be darned if I can't find a drain plug for the engine.

Its a 77 Closed side with the cradle style engine mount.

On my 165 closed side, it's on the inside corner, left hand side, when your sitting on the operator's seat.
It's a square head plug. Not a hex.

Thanks, found it. Its a lot smaller than I expected, and being covered in oil its pretty hard to find.

Kind of awkward to get at too.

oh well, it still has to be done.

Any one know the actual oil level, there are no marks on my dipstick,

Its sitting at about an inch showing on the stick.

One inch would be about right on my dip stick. There's no oil pump, so the crankshaft/connecting rod splash the oil around.
Just make sure You ad the right amount per the book!

Got the plug out, not sure how I'm going to get it back in. Probably have to jack up the tractor.
I'll know soon.

Plugs in,

had to jack up the tractor and lower the blade to get my hand in there, but it was fairly straight forward
