its just a drain bolt not a head bolt

Recommended Posts

dont know why some people just have to tight the drain bolt as if its a head bolt making the threads life shorter and some times giving us a hard time to open it

I feel you bro. Just tighten it with a spanner and leave it alone, job done. You don't need a 1/2" bar on it.

One of my pet hates used to be working on fords with the big sump bung thread but a tiny 13mm head. Many, many times I've had to chisel them out.

Just to add, spin on oil filters also. The tool is for taking them off, not putting them on and swinging on the end of it. Bit of oil on the seal, hand tighten it, then an extra quarter turn.
