  • How to remove a snapped engine drain plug

    Hi I have tried to winterize my mercruiser 4.3lt V6 2000 model engine, apart from the starter being faulty and needs replacing I managed to snap the head off one of the blue plastic drain plugs and part of the thread is still in the engine. The water has drained out as the thread is hollow but I need to replace it so I can winterize properly when starter is replaced. Has anyone any ideas? thanks

    bout the easiest is to get an ezi-out...it's threads that are backwards so it spins the part out...you use it in a hand drill...cost is nominal..found in any autoparts store....
