Stripped HFCM plug, now what??

Was doing a filter job and went to drain the water, found a stripped plug.

half *** tried the easy-out and ended up with this


I ordered the updated plug but I was wondering if anyone had a source or part number for that front cover with the 4 bolts? I would rather just buy the cover and gasket, put the plug in it, remove the old cover and slap the new one on.

not really interested in pulling the cover, diesel draining all over while I try and get the old plug out, and then having to bleed the air out of the lines again lol

Since you are getting a new drain plug, try using a chisel and hammer and tapping it around.

i did a google search and everyone says they get so corroded they cant get them out, thats why I was looking for the whole cover.

you would think that they wouldn't seize up since they spend their whole life surrounded by delicious lubricating diesel fuel

A few have had success using JB Weld on an allen wrench.

might as well try it, I have a ton of those things. just spray it with brake cleaner first and jam it all in there?

any way to try heating it on/off the truck that wont blow me up?

The JB Weld will probably work, no need to heat it. Also, diesel won't blow up like gas.

I'd be more inclined just to get a new cover, wif, gasket and plug. There is a kit available.

Actually my parts guy just tried to sell me one for cost. He has to send it back because no one wants it

Question fuel/water drain plug siezed

Bought the new cover but was wondering am I gonna get 30 gallons of diesel on the driveway when I take the old one off? Also do I need special tools to get the fuel lines off. Is there special crimps i need? Any help will be appreiciated. Once I get the old one off I will get the plug out in the machine shop and sell it so if anyone wants a cover let me know.
