I have a very small pair of channel locks and was able to get it out a little. Then I sprayed with wd-40 and bumped the starter. Tried again to pull out and no luck. Bumped the sarter again, and still no luck. Probably spent 30-45 minutes total to get it out.
Replied before seeing this. Try needle nose vise grips. That was what one of the guys from the old MCOC recommended to me, along with the WD40.
