Still at this??? A hammer and a sharp chisel works every time. Just replace the bolt. Ugly solution but 100% effective.

The bolt is a writeoff, just wanted a more elegent way of removing the frozen plug.

The first thing I would try is putting some kroil on the plug and give that a couple or three of days to work. Internet lore describes ATF mixed with acetone is better, but I haven't gone through that experiment. The next thing I would try is drilling out the plug to get the oil from the crankcase. Once the oil is drained, heat can be applied to the aluminum and the plug cooled. All the while keeping kroil applied to help penetrate the threads. The last thing would be to heat the plug and case together - being careful to not heat melt the case. Then let them cool and repeat that cycle a few times. If none of that worked, an impact wrench on plug would be used. Good luck!


Edit: I see in the saga that the oil is out of the crankcase. Drilling a hole in the plug will still help after applying penetrating oil. Also, heating the case with a torch to ~300 deg F and with a cold wrench from the freezer, see if the plug can be removed with the wrench and a few blows from a hammer.
