any tips / tricks on removing this damn filler plug from my gearbox?

have tried grinding / filing nice(ish) and square shaped, but sockets/spanners still slip off and round it off again

weld a big washer that fits over it on then a big nut and fill the center with weld and as above the heat will sort it out, the washer allows you to be heavy handed with the MIG

Weld a handle on it.

This^.

Just weld a simple piece of flatbar to it and undo with an adjustable crescent. Works every time.

If someone is horrible to you you can make them a sump plug from the end of a candle

Who needs a welder?

Sorry, couldn't find it in English.

I've always welded nuts on, perfect hole in the middle to fill with weld.

Could potentially cut some flats on that one though and put the next sized down socket on it. If needed before you get the welder.

1995 Suzuki super carry van. 

Gluey windscreen seal, or poppy outy windscreen seal? 

Planning work on one but unsure on seal type. I presume it's oldschool style non glue but would rather not encounter surprise if I can help it. 

Go!

Tried that before ending up with the welder - using the angle grinder and file, the nut would always end up rounding off again.

However, success was had on Sunday arvo

Is it better to run a 9v coil and ballast resistor, or a 12v coil direct?
