            personally, I don't spend more than 5 minutes on a clean out cap before I go to the next biggest wrench or PB. Then I would just break out the cap or fut out the clean out all together and replace the fitting. Don't wate your time on trying to preserve the cap. It's not worth the hassle

              The water goes down just barely. A snake wont work on them right angles "90's"
              Is there any ideas you folks might have to break this 2 1/4" plug with a 1" square nut to wrench on?
              Regardes Bob.
              If you guys didn't get the memo he is referring to a drum trap. Why would you even mess with trying to remove the cleanout on this? Just cut it out install a glue P-trap. Something you can run a snake down if you ever need to and get on with the rest of the day. Its really not all that hard. Oh and change that old 1955 tub waste while you're at it!
              Distractions are everywhere, don't lose sight of your dream.

                If you have room, why wouldn't you replace a 53 year old trap???

                  Mr. Devine Plumbing has the solution that I would recommend
                  replace it with something that can be maintained

                    Well I ended up heating and taping it with a hammer as PaPaDan said. That plug nut was on there pretty good, had me scared for a moment but it broke loss, got it snaked out and went back together just fine. I should'nt have a problem if this happens again.

                    Regards Bobby.
