Removing/Installing temp sensor question

While I was detailing the engine compartment, (1951, straight 8, 263 cu.in.), I thought it easier to remove the temp sensor out of the side of the block. I loosened and removed the nut and then I tried to pull the sensor out and guess what, it didn't come out so I pulled some more and I couldn't budge it. So I put the nut back on and masked it so I wouldn't get paint on it. I just have to know what's the proper way to remove that sensor from the block? It's not pull harder is it?<P>Thank you,

If you pull harder ,you will end up sending it to be repaired. It is VERY difficult to remove the sensor, but patience and perseverance will prevail! If I remember right ,there is a tapped hole from one of the rocker arm stands that goes into the sensor hole. Take that bolt out and start applying PB blaster or WD-40 . Sooner or later it will come loose.
