Just recently I got the ole 426f running again after a number of years in storage. The first priority was to change the oil. I started her up and let her warm up a bit; with the temp just right, I attempted to remove the drain plug. For some reason it just doesn't not want to budge. I'm using a six point hex and gently tapping on it with a breaker bar, but it just doesn't want to move. The hex head is still existent, but is slowly but surely rounding. I need some advice as to what to try next.

Try squirting some PB Blaster at the base of the bolt. Also, let the cases cool off a bit...
