Well, I'm sure many of you know the pain of the quick disconnect heater hose fitting. Mine (1998 5.7 1500) was leaking so I went ahead to replace it. Tried to take it out nice and easy, but of course it snapped off, leaving the threaded portion still in the manifold. I purchased the special extractor tool off of Amazon and punched it in, but instead of removing the remnants it just bored the hole out a bit wider. So the remnants of the old connector are still in there. I'm carefully cutting and punching and trying to remove old pieces without dropping any down the hole to the manifold, which may or may not work. This post is half venting/half looking for suggestions. Any tips/experiences I may not have seen elsewhere?
