Default how do you guys remove the oil drain tube on the head?

i'm trying to remove this piece connected to the head that connects to the oil drain line from the turbo. it looks like it was pressed on. can anyone give me any pointers or advice? i'm working on ej205 heads.

First, why?

It's pressed in. Grab it with vise grips and twist it out. You'll destroy it pulling it out.

Use a closed wrench or a pipe that fits over it and turn left and right with a pulling force until it comes out, also try getting a screw driver behind it and pry while turning left and right.

Hey, at least you caught it now. I would have tapped mine for a -8 line but I forgot until I already had the motor back in.

smack it with a rubber mallet to loosen it up, then use vice grips. be careful to hit it at a strong part and not at the edge as you can dent/bend the opening.

Removed two this way.

Let someone hold the head for you while you turn left and right, it gets easier as you go along, 3/8npt taps into the hole without drillng. I have 3/8npt to -10 fitting there.
