I've been fighting with this stupid frost plug for a few days now. I've drilled a small hole, screwing in a screw and reefing on it. no go. Tryed a bigger screw... the screw just comes flying out with no frost plug attached. I've tryed prying it out with a screw driver. I have a slide hammer but no good attachments will work, and there isnt much room to use it in there anyway. I've even tryed freezing it by spraying it with some of that canned duster stuff (you know how if you spray it sideways, it shoots out freezing liquid instead of air), and then reefing on it. No go.

I'm out of ideas and left with an ugly looking hole in the middle of the frost plug. And I'm getting pretty darn frustrated. Please help!

Don't drill out the plug. Just take a punch and place it in the corner of the plug. Then whack the S out of it with a BFH. The plug will flip on its side. Grab it with pliers and pull it out. When re-installing the new freeze plug. Coat it with a thin layer of gasket sealer (I use that stickey brown S that comes in a white bottle with a brush). Drive the new one in flush with a proper sized socket or something similar.

I thought of trying something like that but I was worried that will just push it into the block :doh:

Drilling is getting nowhere fast................... I'm about ready to shoot thing thing with a shotgun and put it out of its misery. How the hell can this thing be stuck in there so tight if it was leaking?
