    try striking the fitting squarely with a hammer. don't hit it from the side it will break off. hit it solid 3-4 times and try it.

    if you have an air chisel put on a blunt tip in it just hammer on the fitting it will break loose if no air heat that will always work

    GENTLE heat. Heat the fitting not the block and remove quickly.
