Still not having any luck getting the block heater out. I followed the instructions giving by taking a hammer and block of wood and tapping the part that sticks out after removing the hex nut. I don't want to damage the block.

thanks Phil

Not sure what you are pounding on with a block of wood or why. In your other post you answered that it was the flat style heater which will have a small, maybe 3/16" brass stud and nut in the center of the heater. Is that correct????? If so, stop pounding and just pry the heater out of the block with a screwdriver or a thin chisel or pry bar.

This heater is the old style no brass screw. It has flat disc
and a threaded portion coming out of the block about 1 1/2 inches. I have never seen one like this.I posted a couple days ago and someone told me to remove hex nut and tap the part that was coming out but it did not come apart.

Try threading a nut half way on the threaded part of the heater element and thread a bolt into the remaining half of the nut for more back and forth leverage.

Got an oxyaccet torch?

(With the block drained) heat the HEATER quite hot and allow to cool to ambient.

Most likely will about fall out, otherwise repeat.
