Early Quadrajet APT plug

How do you remove the APT plug on early (1973) Quadrajets? should I drill it and use a pick, or go at it with dremel tool?

Re: Early Quadrajet APT plug

Easiest way is to drill a couple tiny holes beside the plug and lever it out.

I suppose with a Dremel you could clearance one side easily too.
You could find a lot of crud in there and the screw not working.

Thank you. That plug is for the later Quadrajets (75ish and up) with the APT at the top. Earlier ones have it under the fuel filter.

Thanks. Sounds good, pretty much attack it enough to pry it. I am half expecting the screw to be frozen up in there

Re: Early Quadrajet APT plug

I got the plug out. It was easy. Hit it with a 1/8" drill bit and it pried right out. Screw is frozen. Even let it soak in PB, ATF, and Acetone. Maybe next time the engine is good and hot I will see if it moves.
