Default V12 Distribution Air Pipes Removal HELP!

I recently obtained a 1971 Coupe, V12 with ZS carbs. Car must have sat for a few years as I have no documentation and it looks unloved. Going through everything before even attempting to start it. Cleaned our gas tank, blew out all fuel lines, replaced all rubber fuel lines, and did a complete rebuild on the ZS carbs.

But I see those stupid emission systems air pump distribution pipes and want them out. Soaked them really good with Blaster rust penetrant and got about half of them out AOK. But struggling with the remainder.

Any suggestions? Anyone else out there have experience with the removal of these?

FYI – I did do a search of the forum but didn’t really anything about rusty frozen air pipes….

I took mine out when I had the manifolds off. It was easier to tap them out from under the flange.
