I don't know the exact sizes but think an 8" adjustable wrench will fit both sizes. :)

it would but the po used too much force to install and my 7/16" is a little loose for the lower plug.
I can't find any square head wrenches that will snug it up and I cant get an adjustable on there without concerning slippage.

It's just a 1/8" pipe plug.
I would put a vise grip on it to remove it then buy a new one the next time I was at Home Depot or the hardware store. Probably cost all of 75 cents - just so I didn't look like a complete hack.

never intended to imply anything. I respect your input. You remind me of my dad, a machinist and he always got things to work. Sometimes it just took a little imagination.

again thanks

I think Mark's idea with using a socket extension is a better one.
I never thought of it but will in the future if I get a stuck one.
