    chipping it out, wire brush, wd-40, chisel, no luck. The hitch will go in 3/4 of the way. I can see the glob of rust, just can't get through it.

    put the hitch in as far as it will go and back slowly into a block wall somewhere. it should push it on in.

    I tried that once and poked through the block wall.

    Best advice is to get a new hitch....theyre not much
