I was attempting to remove my hpop reservoir plug today (with the correct tools) and the plug was on so tight that it stripped the allen...thing. Either way, now my allen wrench just spins in the screw. I need to know...

HOW CAN I drain the hpop reservoir in another way? Or somehow get that plug out?

no need to drain hpop oil since it'll circulate with crankcase oil while trucks' running.

If need be ,is there enough "meat" to grab with vice grips?

I understand that, but I need to pull the HPOP so I can replace the gasket.

And I should go out and pick up a nice strong set of Vise-grips. If I can't get it off with them, are there any alternatives? or do I just let the oil run out and make a huge mess? haha

if you wanna replace the plug on the cheap, hit up a hydraulic store and get a #4orb plug.
