Done gnarled it all up?
Still able to get a bite?
I love heat!
Heat is my friend!
I looked at pics of your pump at auto zone and on oreilly auto parts on line
i think that if you wrap the majority of the pump w/ a sopping wet rag
have your wrench at the ready
and apply heat from a plumbers "turbo torch" (handheld unit, w/ mapp gas)---not a regular old propane unit (looks similar though)or use a pinpoint tip on a acetylene rig
something that will immediately and very quickly heat up the portion around stuck fitting (the boss) only!I'm talking 15 seconds of rotating the heat then pass off the torch to your pal and get on it w/ the wrench real fast!
Imma plumber, this is what I use to solder and also do "light" un-sticking of parts (like yours). Coupled w/ a bottle of map gas, it's the next best thing to acetylene!---10 times better than a propane torch
keep your rag tight and wet---keep heat off of the fitting to be extracted----there's no doubt this will get it out
the "o" ring will most likely be fried, once the fitting is removed--so be sure to change it
hope this helps
