Be glad you didn't run into the problems I did last night on the 95. Some ******* stripped the plug in the nosedrive. Had a HELLUVA time getting it out.

Boost 2 is temporarily running Zilla'* plug. I had to stake a hex key into the plug with a punch and hammer to get it to bite.

Couldn't you have used a tap and maybe a slighly larger plug if necessary?

Bill, the hex portion was stripped. I taper-ground a 6mm hex driver for a 3/8" ratchet, then drove it in with a small hammer, and staked around it with a center punch and small cold chisel. The threads themselves were fine.

This is the best way to get it out, as you don't want to drill the plug for an easy-out. Too much risk of getting steel shavings in the gear housing.
