New here to the site and it looks like a lot of great info.  I just picked up an '84 Ariens S-16 (model K341S).  I have a few other issues with the tractor but first I simply want to change engine oil.  I did search through the forum hoping for a clear answer but I didn't find one. The oil dipstick is clearly visible and easy to find on this tractor.  As silly as it sounds I cannot find the oil drain plug on this.  Common sense would indicate its at or near the oil fill location but I can't find the drain plug at all. My copy of the owners manual does not clarify its actual location.  I've looked for it several times as has a friend and neither of us can find it.  Can anyone post a picture showing exactly where the oil drain is located on this particular engine/tractor?

It is underneath the machine about just above the axle. Should be a square head pipe plug.

Welcome, TractorA. No question is silly when it comes to oil! Who'd think to look down low to find it?

if it is an S series with a Kohler single then it isn't that new of a machine. By then they were onto the GT series and the twin cyl engines.

Welcome!
As said above, out the bottom right behind the axle. Any pics of your tractor? I am curious on the year of your tractor with that engine. Do you have the model number?
