I had the same problem on my Jubilee. Try finding a bolt large enough to thread into the brass sleeve stuck in the block. Once it get tight, pull the bolt straight out with a pair of pliers. I was amazed but it worked for me.

Every sending unit I have seen was made of brass and therefore cannot be rusted in the block. It is probably just real tight. If it is a mechanical type gauge and you are replacing it, cut the wire that goes to the gauge so that you can get a socket or box end wrench on the sending unit. If you round off the corners of the hex you may have to drill it out and tap the head/block to the next larger size and put in a bushing.
