Hi Darren,

If the bung is beyond repair then you could weld a large nut to it and use that to remove it. They don't yield easily sometimes.

Paul.

Could you drill and re-tap it next size up, leaving the bung in place? fitting a reducer then when done, they are never good to work with in my experiance I leave them well alone,

Failing that you could get a carbide burr and remove metal top and bottom, if still no movment get a hacksaw blade and cut the last bits out through the threads, see if you can get some movment that way.

What has snapped, the 2 flats that the spanner would have gone on?

Chris

Paul bet me to it, with a good idea, as the heat will help break the bond between the 2.

the water tap must have been snapped off at some point. there is also a bit snapped off where the spanner would go making it even more dificult.
