Grind 2 sides of the plug flat. Heat with a propane torch to about 250-300 degrees F. Melt a beeswax candle against both sides of the plug, so the wax wicks up into the threads. Try tightening the plug, then loosening. If it moves a little, spray your favorite penetrating oil on it, and move it back and forth, till you get it out. Don't over heat with an acetylene torch, or you could yank the soldered female threaded part off the pan. If at all possible leave the oil pan on. Its a lot easier to take a small part (the plug) off of the big piece(the tractor), than to take a small piece off of the oil pan.

Good advice Dave, however my oil plug is rotating, it just isn't coming out. The good news is that it isn't leaking so I can still use the tractor, but oil change is due.

You need to rig something up, that puts down pressure on the plug, as you turn, suggest you walk away, and sleep on it. My best rigs come to me halfway between sleep, and awake! Wait just a minute, must have drifted off, there! Pull it into a wooden floored barn, drill and tap an eye bolt into the plug. Drill a bolt or screw into a well secured floorboard, directly under the plug. Attach chain to eye in plug, and same in floor. Join the 2 chains together with a turn buckle. Tighten the turnbuckle, putting pressure on the plug. If pan fitting has come unsoldered, you may find that this won't work.

I tend to agree that it is impossible, but my friend's 135 has exactly the same problem and no leaks!
