    I take mine out with a drill bit (by hand). I think it's a 1/4'' bit that fits nice and snug into that plunger and pulls it out every time.

    There is a Shop in the L.A. basin I think it was Gardena, called Tap-X they have a Mobile and a Shop Laser that can burn a Bolt or Plug out without touching the Block or Head.
    They do amazing work, I had them save a Stude. V8 Cylinder Head for me by burning out a Water Manifold Screw.

    I have the same problem but there's hardly any plug above the block, last guy there really ran it in deep! I wonder if driving a piece of hex stock and brazing it in will work? Twisted off both of the water drain plugs on the side of the block as well. Those two I may leave as is.

    ROCKNE10 - Got that one out, but the plug in the OTHER oil gallery on the opposite side won't budge...

    It must be removed to properly clean out the oil galleries -- but MORE IMPORTANTLY -- replaced during reassembly. Otherwise you will have no oil pressure at start-up and bad things will happen.

    You and your machinist are both aware of the pipe plug in the oil galley just under the distributor--yes?
    Scuse my ignorance - Can you please explain what you mean? Is it supposed to be plugged or unplugged? What are the consequences? Cheers, Quentin.

    If its really stuck a little heat on face of block will help and something tapped into the center hole, and lots of carb cleaner and penetrant. Luck Doofus

    I got mine out with a small mechanic's magnet on the end of an extension wand.

    After spraying with your favorite lubricant, the taper of a Pencil gently forced into the hole in the center will usually, but not always do the trick depending if it is gunked up badly or not.

    If you can find a crochet hook, it will help
