    how does the oil filler tube help maybe your talking about the dipstick tube, in that case there is a 15mm bolt that holds a tab down on the head. it just twists out at a slight angle. i had to remove mine on my header install. and just in case you really want to take out your filler tube, it just twists counter clockwise about 1/2 turn

    I am like you and cannot get mine to come out. I bought a pullout LS1 and the tube was pulled partially out when they wrapped the motor up with plastic wrap on the crate. I wound up wrestling mine back in place.
