fuel/water separator

so i bough my truck back in September and went out to change the fuel filters today and when i was going to take out the fuel/water separator to drain it i noticed the last people to change them stripped the plug. i tryed using an extractor but the metal is so soft the extractor just strips it out more. any suggestions on how to get it out?

BTW before i started this i went out and bought the updated plug.

If I am not mistaken you need the fuel line disconnect tools.Not sure about the wires though.I don't have another one here to look at.From what I thought you had to lift the lock on the hardshell and pull.

i would JB weld in an allen wrench and once it's seized in there break it loose and take out the old plug and throw away your old plug/allen wrench
