Default Oil Change Vangaurd 23HP

I am about ready to do my first oil change on my new motor. I was looking at the oil drain plug on the backside of the engine, holy crap does that look like a bear to change any ideas and should I replace the oil filter on the first 8 hour service.

Thanks

I would replace the filter. It will be full of crap due to it being a new engine. Filters are also inexpensive.

Ron

Is there a special trick to draining the oil because the engine bracket is right there where rear plug is.

I just pull the motor out. only 4 four bolts for motor mount, 4 for muffler, 1 for throttle cable, 1 hose for gas pump.

I can reach the drain from under my cart. The oil runs onto the mount a bit but no big deal.
