I love the optimistically naïve simplicity of service manuals.

I've been performing maintenance of our ancient garden tractor in an attempt to get it running before the grass eats the house, and I came across this pithy directive: "Remove the transaxle drain plug."

It certainly sounds straightforward enough--but what the manual doesn't tell you is that in order to reach the drain plug to remove it, you need to be a double-jointed contortionist who can bench-press 500 pounds.
