The front plugs have not been tapped yet, they are still the type that gets punched in. I forgot about the drill-screw-pull idea. I'll do that.
My oxy-acetelyne torch is out of Oxygen, so I used a MAPP gas torch to heat up the pipe plugs in the rear. I was surprised to see that I didn't need to get them red, just get them nice and hot, then spray it down with oil. This didn't, however, work for the pipe plug just above the oil filter mount. The darn hex portion stripped before I even knew it. I'll have to refill my oxygen tanks then use an EZ Out. Rats!
