The exhaust was from a motorcycle header. Perfect diameter, so I cut pieces and welded it all together. A lot of modification went on with this. I'm very happy with it.

I finally got an oil pressure gauge for Alice. I'll get some pics later. I tried getting the plug out of the block the other day, but that didn't happen. Twisted off a 3/16" allen wrench. Not sure how they installed it, hope they didn't use the Red thread locker on it! Here's a pic of where it's at, in place of the 'Oil Sentry' switch.

I think I am going to start it up and let it run for a while to warm the block. I have to make an adapter for a 3/16" allen to a socket wrench to get more torque to see if it will break loose. I have an electric heat gun I can put on it for a while if needed, don't really want to use a flame. Too close to a brand new oil filter and the PTO.

99% chance it's red loc-tite because that is what is speced for a thread sealer/locker. Propane torch right on the plug and it will come out much easier. Must reach 400° to relinquish its sealing/locking ability.

That's what I am afraid of. Probably need a new filter and better take the PTO clutch off! Gonna need new paint too!

It shouldn't hurt the filter or pto clutch, only the paint. Keep the heat right on the plug, don't try heating around it, it's not necessary. If you have a real good soldering iron that will do it too!!

All I have for a soldering iron is one of the small tipped jobs. Gets pretty hot, but takes about 10 minutes! LOL. Probably a couple hours to heat that plug! I have a propane torch with Mapp gas tank. Tip is about a 1/2" dia. I'll get out later if it warms up some. Thinking if I start it and let it run for a while it won't take so long to heat the plug.

Hi Kenny, I have an impack tool that you hit with a hammer that works very well in these situations you need a good Allen wrench though,, but heat is also going to be your friend.

I have 2 of those, just no allen bit to fit it. Guess I could try to weld one up. Gonna have to make one to fit a socket anyways.

Kenny, you can also try using a punch that just fits inside the plug not to damage the allen head part and give it a couple good licks with a hammer after you put the heat to it.
