The spark arrestor clean out plug on our 4000 watt Onan is frozen in place and I want to remove it to blow out any debris and rust. Any ideas how to get it off?
Thanks, Greg

Have you tried it when the pipe was fairly warm (genset running recently)? It's an off-chance but easy and inexpensive to try. The metal will change shape as it heats up and who knows???
