Onan generators can be real tight, to the point I had to use a 24 inch breaker bar to loosen the drain plug. Because of that I always use a six point socket.

All good ideas/suggestions above, and let me add one - take that can of WD40 and toss it into the nearest dumpster. replace it with the PB blaster mentioned above, or any other brand name product (Liquid Wrench, Kano Kroil, etc.) Kroil can be found on the "Kano kroill, where to buy" website.

Is the plug a regular pipe thread?

Edit: Never mind. Just checked and mine has a T-handle valve and connects to a drain tube that sticks out the bottom of the generator compartment. Scratch the Fram Quick drain adapter.

Thanks for all the input..... to many to individually reply to so thanks to all.

If I could go back in time I would have asked Speedco to go ahead and do the Genny service even if it meant stripping the plug..... now of course the plug is stripped courtesy of me but the Genny is not serviced.... live and learn
