    broke-off CCM fitting in my X-valve, what shoud i do?

    I broke off my CCM macro line air fitting so it's flush with my X-Valve, and there is nothing at all to grip onto. How would I ever get it out now, it's Teflon taped in really tight, that's why I broke the head off trying to twist it out of the hole?

    EZ-out. you might scratch it around the inlet, but that's a small price to pay for getting it out.

    I tried to use an "Easy Out", but it also broke off inside the CCM. Now I'm really in trouble because that was hardened steel! What do I do?

    dang that sucks man, ive stripped out a couple npt plugs in asa's and have used a drill to drill out most of the plug then used a stainless dental pic and tweaked out a bit to get the rest out; im not sure what the fittings are made of though, the plug was just aluminum...i think nobody has the best idea though...
