I got it removed - the flats were shot, so it took two different pipe
wrenches.  One would work for  a while.  Then the other one would work -
different grips I guess, they were aobout the same size.

I had (maybe still have?) one like that one one of my cars. If the flats
and the corners are shot, then there's no downside to using a pair of vise
grips to take it out.

Good luck,
