      I was trying to avoid removing the radiator.

      I got it loose with a block of wood in #1 cylinder, set the head back on with 6 bolts and rotated the crank till the piston was stopped by the wood. Then, with a long breaker bar, broke it loose.

        FWIW, a 1.5" 6 point 1/2" drive socket is available as a water tank heater element socket. Not quite as heavy as the 3/4" 12 point version. I got mine at a cheapy tool supply in Pidgeon Forge TN last year.
