Question

Prepairing the engine block for sandblasting and paint. Would like to get rid of the heater and put a solid plug instead. Tried to turn it in place by big pliers and then by chiesel with no luck. Any trick to pop it out?

Once again, many thanks! Two allen bolts were seen from the outside but by their look I supposed they would put the heater apart and had no relation to its fit in the block. 

Acting with an allen tool I was able to move them nearly half a turn by normal loosing direction - counter clockwise. After which they both got a stop but could spin relatively free in the range. It looked too untypical indeed and I pryed the heater body by its edge and got it off without much efforts.

Now is the time to look for a correct plug. I could make a new one with a lathe but have no idea on the fit tightness. So seems better to purchase the original part. Bad thing it would take loooong.
