There is a tool that we have here in the Army just for this problem. Basicly all it is is a nut that will thread on to the threads on the glow plug. Its cut in half so that you can get it on the treads. Once its on you put bowed end or preferably a ratchet wrench on it and tighten it against the block. As you tighten it it pulls the glow plug out. They come in set and individualy for all mager types of glow plugs. I wish I had a pic to show you. I think ours are made by Snap-on. Hope that this helps you!
That sound similar to what we used to use when I was in the military. Sometime the glow plug electrodes would be old enough and used enough that the electrode part that is in the head would swell because of overuse and that would keep them from coming out. If this was the case the only solution was to pull the head.
