Has anyone ever changed the rear freeze plug w/o pulling the engine? I have a 1965 Tiger.

No, but I just pulled my motor to do so. About three hours and the hanging motor had me smiling as I traced the rusty water trail behind the flywheel. Changed about 6 of 'em while it was out and 2 others were paper thin. (also washed, pecked at the sludge around the cylinders , so I'm sure it's running cooler/more evenly now. (I chose to leave the transmission in the car, was not bad to re-engage, even jury-rigged a clutch alignment tool with one from a different car, just rolled "precision" amount of tape around each diameter) (I can add pictures someday to share the plugs as a "motivator", but right now they are in my phone)

Thanks much for the info.....!!!! I think I will take a crack at it.....as soon as it gets a little warmer.
Really appreciate the input. I had gotten the same reply from Norman Miller, the man who wrote a book on the Tiger.
Again...thanks and have a great Christmas!!
