    A few of my Fill Plugs won't come out. Why?

    How about some more details? Like which style of pump do you have? What type of fittings are you dealing with? Hex? Square?

    Can you still get a wrench on it or did it round off when you tried to remove it? Generally when I find a plug that refuses to come out, I apply a little heat with a pocket torch.

    Put a little heat and still nothing. Took the tank off and sprayed WD 40 still nothing. The tank started to bend. I had to take the tank off to fill it and put it back on. Not fun. I guess I'm going to have to buy new ones.

    I had one stuck on my fisher ....everything i tried wouldn't budge it. I went and got one of those Gator-Grip sockets at Walmart (that everybody says don't work) and it came right off. I think mine was just overtightened by the service people.

    They can be very tight sometimes but I never had one so tight that it crushed the tank( after applying some heat) but it looks like you might have to buy one. :cry:
