I bought a yardworks Tecumseh snowblower second hand.  There is no manual with it and I cannot see how to change the oil on it.  The serial # is 1I112130046, and there is another #31B3H-0.

snowstorm coming, really need to get the blower in good working order.

Thanksés

Answer
There are several videos on You Tube showing on to change Tecumseh engine oil such as this one.

There should be a model number on the engine.

Does you engine have an engine oil dipstick?
How old is the blower?
Can you attach a picture of the blower and the engine?

Experience

Born and raised in the midwest. Started tinkering with engines when I was about 14 on my Suzuki RM-80. I began lawn mower repair at a small hardware store. I knew absolutely nothing. I read lots of repair manuals and met an older fellow who taught me many lessons. I continued working on small engines through high school and paid my way through college working on mowers at the same hardware store. Decided to get away from the midwest and mower repair so I joined the Air Force. I repaired air traffic control electronic equipment and ended up in Hawaii where I got a part time job at Small Engine Clinic. I gained a lot of experience from the Small Engine Clinic and had a blast repairing small engines. I then took the Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician test and earned my MST. I then traveled to Wisconsin where I attended the factory update training seminar and received formal training. Continued working on mowers part time as I completed 20 years of military. Retired from the military on a Friday and continued in the lawn and garden industry the next Monday.
