9" Ford not venting

OK guys, I've got a 9" Ford with 3.00 gears on my T and it is not venting but leaking around the fill plug and through the seals as pressure builds up. Pulled the hose and the vent appears to be solidly plugged. No problem, just drill it out, right? Well, the vent plug is VERY hard, the bit breaks off, and of course it's still not venting (except through the seals!) It is too hard to cut or grind off. It does turn with vise grips but does not back out and can not be pulled out. How is this thing installed and how do you replace it?

It looks like a big pushpin. I'll try to get a shot while it's still light.

It would sure help.. A lot of them had a tee with a hole through it for the vent to hold it to the rear end,, The tee was for the brake lines..

Heres a couple of pictures of some..


The one on the right is the one that goes through the tee..

Vent photo

Kind of dinged up by attempted grinding, unscrewing, etc. It has proved impossible to remove so far!

It is neither of those types. It has no hex nut and does not seem to be threaded. I have tried to pry it out with vise grips attached and it does not budge. It is too hard to break off and can not be moved enough to get a pry bar under it.

It's from a '63 T-Bird if that helps.

I do have to say.. I have never seen one like this.. I would cut it down and pass a light weld over it.. Then redrill another one next to it, and run a tap, and put a new vent.. Put grease on your dill bit, and tap.. This will help to catch the little pieces on metal..

Problem solved!

Finally managed to break it off with pry bar under vise grips and it is still firmly in there but with a hole now. I plan to drive a small brass barb fitting in the hole and clamp the hose to the threaded part. Maybe my axle seals won't need replacing after all!

I've never seen one like that. Is there not another vent in the housing anywhere? Is this housing stock or has it been modified?
