Does anyone know how to remove the oil pickup tube on an EA82 engine without damaging it?

You might be able to heat up the surounding area of the block and get it out.

One inch chisel and BFH :D I was really sketchy about pulling mine when I was rebuilding my EA8 SPFI. It didnt seem right but if you work with the angle its stuck in there and pound it out she should move smoothly with every wack. Putting it back in was just as crazy as it had to be pounded back in the same way. Just be sure your wacking on the tube and not your soft aluminum block! :D
