Seized 'access plug' in generator cover

Hi all

the large 'plug' in the genny cover is seized solid on me! It's such a soft metal that the 10mm hex in it is starting to round off, if I remove the genny cover can I free it off from the inside? or am i best just chiselling it it round and buying another plug?

I'd chisel it

there is nothing to grab from the inside

and dont hit anything into the hex

they break into the motor
as above

I have just replaced mine for the second time in 7 years!
Chisel it is then! A 'fix' like this is right up my street, off to find my FBH now

Cheers guys

Though I'm thinking of promoting my rubber mallet. Does a good job with slightly less collateral damage. :)
