I have never owned one of those motors so I would need to see some good pics to see where to drain and fill. Usually the fill will have a dipstick and you unscrew it and set back down without screwing it back on to check oil level.

The drain usually is on the left lower side of the motor or underneath. And the fill usually is on the right. But who knows what the Chinese have done.

It is possible that thier is no screen, without being familer with this motor I am going by all other ATV/Dirt Bikes I have owned.

Well the drain hose I had was broken off, so I have no idea which way it goes. I was going by this pic I found online that is the exact same carb I have.

It sounds like I just need to have it go down and off to the side a bit. The reason the gas was leaking earlier was most likely due to the drain screw not being tightened all the way.

I'm pretty sure I found the oil drain plug, and if I'm supposed to fill it up at the dipstick location I should be good to go there. So, you check the oil w/o screwing it all the way in? Good to know.

Where does the screen usually lie if there is one?

What about the correct type of oil?
