Ford Dorset Lees Sacrificial Anodes

hello on the heat exchanger on the above there are some square 1/2 in sockets, I assume they harbour zinc pencil anodes....
i have tried to 'unscrew' the socket but it is very tight, as the heatex jacket appears to be cast alloy i am afraid of fracturing it.
are my suspicions correct?
any way of opening and then replacing the anodes?

thnx
J
