Let us know if it works. Good information for the rest of our generator equipped folks.

Ordinarily a 12 point socket will work on square heads, you have to experiment with socket size though.

I'm a litle confused about weather this plug has an "innie" or and "outtie" wrench attachment. I'm sure that they put these plugs in the muffler before they installed the muffler to the genset. I would remove the muffler so you can get better access to these plugs. Once you have them removed I would take the plugs to the local hardware store and suitable replacements that have a hex so that an allen wrench can be used to remove them the next time you have to preform the maintenance.

just my 2cents ...

I wish I could remove the muffler, but I am not mechanical incline.

Okay, I went to Sears and asked for a crow claws tool without too much success. After 1/2 hour looking for the tool I found it. After seeing the tool I thought there is no way I can use it to remove this square bolts. Then I had an idea to buy one of this sockets that fits all. And with a lot of elbow grease, I finally got this two square bolts out. The maintenance book for the Onan generator states to remove the bolts every 50 hours, right.. the previous owner never did. By the way that is a very handy tool to have in the tool set. Thank you everyone for your suggestions.

This weekend is our last camping trip of the season (Yogi Bear in Luray, VA). After ending that trip I will be winterizing my camper and waiting until next year to go ahead and go camping again.
