Unless I can figure out a good reason to leave the hose fitting in, I would like to take it out and put a drain valve in.
Is that hose thing an adapter which is pipe thread on the other end?
If so, then a large Easyout might just do the trick along withe a little penetrating oil and maybe a heatgun?
UPDATE!... READ BRIAN'S NOTE BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE TO IT that little flange on the inside of a normal hose fitting can be snugged up with a rounded screwdriver handle and a couple of taps then try two gaskets.
Also... spray battery
terminal cleaner should clean it up pretty quick!
