Sierra, Granada 7.5" diff back plate

Hi all

I'm looking for a Sierra, Granada diff back plate with a filler plug that can be removed.

Mine has seized solid and whilst I plan to machine it out, I suspect that the thread will strip when I eventually get to it so am looking for an alternative to allow me to refit the diff.

Thanks

Gavin

weld nut on it, and make alot of heat. Heat will realse from seized. Maybe you can save

I've used the weld a nut on approach with locking car wheel nuts when I didn't have the tool for them. It worked just fine. As said the heat from the welding process may help free the seized thread as well.

Thanks for the advice - heat and a small dose of brute force have solved the problem so no need to source a replacement.

Helpful replies were greatly appreciated
