Well guys I got the plug out. tried all the techniques before using heat and no luck. it was in there tight, impact wrench and hammer driver didnt budge it. so out come the torch. like I was told I removed the alternator and put tin in place for the injector lines to prevent heat damage. I heated the plug only till it was almost red around the hex area. put a big johnston bar and pipe on it and never even got to pull hard,.... plug was loose. I swear I did smell the lock tight melt loose. thanks for all the advise, bottom line is use a bit of heat. thanks

here is a pix of the way I am going to plumb my heater. This is not my tractor, seen it at a show and took the pix. My tractor has the new style injector lines and pump so the middle hole is not axcessible. but the plug right behind the alternator is, thats the one Im using. and will be very neat looking. I use the hole in the other side of the block center for the bottom of the heater. Hope this helps.

Just wanted to add that I used the front plug because of neatness of hose. YES is should use the center plug to heat the head evenly with block heater. I have a few 4020s with it there and a couple with it in the front. thing is I may put a loader on it and dont want to be trying to change fuel filters with loader and heater hose in the way. thanks again
