Glow Plug Stuck!

Went to change my glow plugs today, changed 7 plugs with no problem and then all hell broke loose. Got to the #7 cylinder and pulled out the shell of the plug. Made some attempts to pull out the core but it just wont budge. I have pulled the injector to get a better grip on it but that bastard is in there. Anybody know any good tricks? I have already tried to pop it out with compression (turning the engine over) but it aint moving. I'd much rather work it out than pull the head! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hey guys, got the rest of the plug out, soaked it with WD-40 and used a pair of vice grips and a tire iron. After clamping the vice grip on the exposed probe which is knurled to hold onto the tip, I put the flat end of the tire iron inside the jaws of the vice grip and used the neardy head bolt for leverage. Hope this will help someone else sometime.

Keep On Strokin!!

Glad you got it figured out!
I was gonna suggest PB Blaster to soak it with. That stuff works good.
