Drain plug problem
Earlier this week did my end-of-season maintenance. Ran motor, drained oil, new filters. Went to drain the block and the very last blue drain plug snapped off in my hand. Looking aft, this is the left side manifold drain. There is also a hose coming down from the water pump, and they meet at a threaded fitting directly under the manifold.
I can't get the threaded part that's left in the fitting to back out. I thought I could take out the entire threaded fitting, but there is no clearance due to it hitting parts of the motor mount.
Due to tight fit, and going vertically from underneath, I tried screw driver up inside but it doesn't "bite" on anything strong enough to get it to turn out.
Was thinking my socket wrench, as it has a 90 degree angle, but dont have any attachments to get up there; again like a phillips head.
Was thinking a dremell tool with a 90 degree head and an attachment to dig out the remaining piece, like a dentists drill.
Anyone have any thoughts on how I can do this, prior to going to the local shop?
