    Hi Folks

    I went to change oil on the snow blower a Husquvarna with the snow king engine.

    What kind of tool do you need to get the plug unscrewed. I have never seen a plug like that. Sort of a Ying/Yang type shaped thing.

    All advise appreciated.

    You could try Knipex pliers. They will adjust to anything and they grab really good.

    I use them on socket head cap screws that you can’t use an allen wrench on, and it break them loose because they’re round and not a hex head bolt.

    That’s the fill plug. It shouldn’t be super tight. Anything to fit between the raised sections should work. Flat stock, screwdriver sideways, maybe even a 1/2″ drive ratchet/extension ?

    That also looks like a fill or level check plug. I think there should be another plug to try. It looks loke you would have to tip the machine to get that one to drain. Otherwise a channel lock or vise grip.

    I think the drain is the small hex head bolt below the black the in the picture. As Kurt said, the black thing looks like a fill tube cap.

    If the hex bolt happens to be something else…lay a screwdriver through the middle of the black cap…or any other long flat tool. If that doesn’t work, grip the outside with a pair of water pump pliers.

    I think you are right Jon, based on this schematic. The main plug shown in the photo looks like #2 in the schematic and the hex below should be the #3 in the schematic.

    Looks like a one way nut, Only a pair of pliers would remove it BUT I wouldn’t.

    Have you changed oil on the blower in the past?
    Dig through the manual to verify but I don’t think that would be the drain plug.

    I was expecting to see a square drive plug, But yeah Like the others have said. that looks like the fill and I agree that other hex head is the drain plug, Ying yang looks like it’s plastic too so treat it tenderly

    One way tighten only. The drain plug is right above it.

    Uh oh, It’s above it?? Are you sure you don’t mean below it? @theamcguy … and yeah it does look like a one way thing, Wonder why they would do that on the oil fill/check, Very strange…

    Hey @lakelover , Here’s another thought. Is there another oil fill/check on say like the opposite side of the engine? sometimes these little engines have two but block one off depending on what it’s in, Ya might even have one on top

    #421784

    It looks similar to the anti theft screw thread pattern, I’m thinking check for manual like some others have suggested, or even give them a call.

    Any luck since you started this thread.

    Why would anybody use a one way/security plug for any oil changing port though, makes no sense. If the diagram Kurt posted is the same engine there should be another on the other side, is it the same thing?
