Re: How to remove seized oil galley plugs?
Never had to drill one out in 45 yrs+. I always use a acetaline torch and only heat the inside of the plug, till it starts to smoke real good, then quickly whack it with a punch in center and use a good quality 1/4' adapter on a 3/8 ratchet extension, sometimes you have to do it twice. you can also use a square easy out installed backward into plug after heating and a big crescent wrench.
