Where is oil drain plug located on my Craftsman lawn mower model number 917.388460?

I have a Craftsman lawn mower model number 917.388460. I have looked at my lawn mowers owner’s manual and according to the instructions the oil drain plug is supposed to be on the bottom of the lawn mower. The manual drawing isn’t clear as to which bolt it is.

You will find the oil drain plug at the 5 o’clock position on the bottom of your lawn mower.

Disconnect your spark plug

Turn the lawn mower over and lay it on the right side. The drain plug will be closer to the center of the engine than the engine mounting bolts.

Clean any debris from around the oil plug

Remove the plug, drain the oil and replace the plug securely.

After you have drained the oil into a suitable container, dispose of the oil in a safe manner.
