You gotta fight it off! Pull up, twist and rock back and forth all at the same time. It will eventually come off.

They're tight... If i remember right theres a lip on the plug cap that sits in a groove in the valve cover that also adds some resistance.

If you have an air compressor just put the air nozzle into the drain hole on the right side of the motor and blow. It will pop off without damaging anything.

Might damage your hand if it happens to be above the boot! That is about it. Air does remove it easily though.
