If the tester part that broke off is metal maybe try a magnet or something like that? or some kind of a sucktion like a small vacume

no. thats happened... stick the hose back in a tighten it as hard as u can and gently loosen it.. it worked for me once

also, push came to shove (dunno if thats spelt right) get a long flat head and twisted it to get it loose, shouldnt be that tight...then just crank it over a few times and itll shoot out..

you can also try to fit long needle nose pliers in there and wedge it in there and try to turn the pliers and such..also a strong magnent has worked too..

It happened to be before, the hose broke off, I used a of set of long needle nose plyers to twist it out, took 30 min but it finnaly unscrewed out of the hole...

I bought a better compression tester after that and cleaned the threads out carefully.

You can also put a few drops of motor oil in there to help lube the threads.

no dude i do understand it happened to me. threadlocker is a compound that you can buy at an advance auto parts or autozone or something it comes in a small tube and theres different strenghts you just squeeze it out of the tube and put it on the threads of the hose and screw it into the adapter. and then you do as i said i bet you ten bucks it works my paypal is [email protected]

We understand its "really stuck" Since you cant get a wrench in there, theres no way its super tight.

What Probably happened is your threads were dirty and it cuased it to get stuck, you can either do as I said and try to use plyers, or the above mentioned way of using thread locker would probably work well....theres really no set way to get it out except be creative....
