  • Place your oil pan on a level surface directly next to your lawn mower on the side with the filler cap.
  • Remove the oil filler cap by unscrewing it in a counterclockwise rotation. You will notice once the cap is unscrewed that it contains a dip stick that protrudes from inside of the cap.
  • Tip the mower up on its side so that the oil filler hole can drain into the oil pan. Hold it in position to allow all the oil to drain into the pan.
  • I would prop it up with a concrete block .
  • Yap, it was stupid not to put a drain plug in it!
  • Take care,

    Well If You Cant find drain plug [should be a square drive]

    Then I would turn the thing upside down [empty gas tank first of course]& drain it thru the filler plug. Perhaps the drain is an inset hex bolt and you must REALLY clean the underneath, dig around for it!

    Changing blade on Ryobi chop saw

    Unplug the saw. If the blade is moving, wait for it to stop. If the blade arm is locked into its down position, push down slightly on the blade arm to release the tension on the blade arm lock pin. Pull out the lock pin to release the blade arm and allow it to move upward.
    2 Rotate the lower blade guard upward and expose the Phillips-head screw that holds the blade bolt cover in place. Loosen the screw and rotate the blade bolt cover up and out of the way to expose the hex-head blade bolt.
    3 Push the spindle lock button in and rotate the blade bolt until the spindle lock engages fully, stopping the ability of the blade bolt to rotate.
    4 Loosen the blade bolt using a 10-millimeter/12-millimeter combination wrench. The blade bolt is lefthand threaded, which is the reverse of conventional threading. Turn the bolt clockwise to loosen and remove it. Note the placement of the outer washer and remove it as well.
    5 Place a drop of machine oil on the inner blade bolt washer. Do not remove the inner washer. If it is missing, replace it before replacing the blade.
    6 Slide the replacement saw blade up past the lower blade guard and onto the blade spindle. The blade teeth should point downward at the front of the saw. Saw blades often have rotation arrows that can help you double-check that the saw is installed to rotate the correct direction.
    7 Press the spindle lock button in to lock the spindle and reinstall the blade bolt. The blade bolt will tighten in a counterclockwise direction. Replace the blade bolt cover and install the blade bolt cover screw.
    8 Position a combination square to check that the blade is square to the saw fence and saw table. If the blade is not square, refer to the procedures in the manual for squaring the blade to the fence and table.
    Things You Will Need
    • 10-millimeter/12-millimeter combination wrench
    • 5-millimeter hex key
    • Combination square
    • Phillips screwdriver
    • Machine oil
    • Overtightening bolts and screws can result in cross-threading. Cross-threading damage compromises the integrity of bolts and screws and can be a difficult error to correct.
    • Do not attempt to install a blade that is too thick in the saw. If the blade washer cannot engage the flats on the spindle, the blade is too thick for the saw.

    How to change a mitre saw blade

    When changing the blade on your mitre saw the first step is to unplug the tool for safety reasons. DO NOT disassembly the safety cover, there is a bolt on the housing that when loosened allows the cover to be moved away from the blade to expose the spindle bolt. After moving the ASSEMBLY away from the blade turn the blade by hand slowly while pushing on the spindle lock to stop rotation. Loosen the blade bolt (usually left hand thread) and place the parts in the order removed, e.g. blade bolt outer flange, blade spacer if used. Reinstall blade noting the rotation of the teeth and replace parts in reverse order. After installation check for rotation by carefully turning the blade by hand and replace safety cover to its original position and tighten bolt.

    Attempting to remove a blade from dewalt dw303 reciprocating saw. The clamp block has a pin that goes through the shaft, and the blade. Does this pin come out in order to remove the blade?

    Your saw has an allen wrench bolt or a quick release pull tab on it. Put some oil on the bottom of the blade wait 5 minutes and then pull the tab or use the allen wrench and loosen it and hold the saw upwards and pull on the blade. you might have to wiggle it a little and the blade should come out.

    Change blade

    all chain saws have a sprocket that the chain runs on this sprocket is what make the chain rotate on the bar. the bar is the long part that sticks out in front of the motor. you must remove the side cover of the saw to access the sprocket region of the saw. be sure the saw is unplugged and then remove side cover the bar is usually held in place by a couple of bolts. on gas saws these two bolts also hold the side cover in place and must be removed to replace the bar and chain. once you have removed the side cover look for bolts holding the bar in place. if you only want to change the chain then you may be able to only loosen the bolts or screws holding the bar in place.there should be a screw to adjust the bar forwards and backwards. this screw put tension on the chain so when you put a new chain on turning the screw will proberly tension the chain /do not overtighten the chain.
    also be sure you put the new chain and blade on the same as the old one that comes off trying to cut with a chain that is on backward does not work. last note if you are replacing the blade because the old one is dull take the saw to a saw shop they can sharpen the exsisting chain and save you money.

    I have a yardman 6.5 h,p.push mower. How do I drain the oil to change it and how do I remove the blade to sharpen it?

    I am assuming you have a Briggs & Stratton motor. If you have a "yardman" engine the procedure is still the same.
    Changing the oil: Your mower does not have a drain plug on the bottom of the mower. Remove the dipstick and tip the mower over on that side. Let the oil run out and leave it tipped over for 5 minutes or so to get all the old oil out. Replace it with 22 oz of good 10w30 or straight 30w oil. I personally use Mobil One and change it once a year.
    Blade: With the mower turned over you will see a bolt in the center of the blade. Remove that bolt and the blade will come off. Use a box-end or socket so you don't mess up the nut. It may be hard to loosen at first. Inspect the blade. If it has not large nicks or the dings and the back of the blade is not worn too much (the curved part) you can sharpen it with a file or grinder. Try to take the same amount off of both ends of the blade. (If you want to know how to balance the blade let me know)
    If the blade has large dings, is bent different on one side more than the other, or parts of it have cracks, replace it with a new one.

    Don't forget to change the air filter.

    How do i change the blade on my delta 10" mitre saw

    Exploded diagram for your SM100M miter saw is here.
    User manual is here.

    Page 20 covers blade change operation.

    Make sure you unplug your saw! You need to remove a screw from the cover and rotate the cover to the rear. Use a hex wrench in the motor shaft to keep the saw blade from turning, and loosen the arbor nut with a 1/2" wrench. The arbor is reverse threaded, so you'll turn it clockwise to loosen, then counterclockwise to tighten it up after you have swapped the blade.
    Rotate the cover back after that's done, and replace the screw.

    If this was useful, please vote. Thanks.

    Can not remove the old blade

    1. Unplug the saw.
    2. Locate the blade lock button used to lock the motor shaft when changing a blade. For your saw, this button is usually located on the left side of the blade guard somewhere around the motor housing.
    3. Push the button while rotating the blade until the button engages and the blade will no longer turn.
    4. Use the wrench that came with the saw (or another wrench) to loosen and remove the blade bolt. For your saw the bolt should have standard right hand threads which means you loosen the bolt by turning it counter clock-wise.
    5. Remove the old blade and replace it with a new blade of the same mounting type. Some blades have a round through hole and some blades have a diamond through hole.
    6. Re-install the blade bolt and tighten clock-wise while holding the blade lock button down.
