Does the dipstick tube go into the base of the timing cover? If so, unbolt the tab that holds the tube to the engine then carefully pry it out with a flat tip using a twisting motion. A little lube may help.
You can stick a punch or round stock into the tube and then clamp a vice grip onto it and tap it up with a hammer on the vice grip. Not good if you are planning to reuse but real easy if you are replacing it anyway.
