    I'd use penetrating oil, and an easy out to try and remove whats left of it. A cheap replacement can be made with a threaded barb fitting (look at NAPA or a hardware store)

    EZ out to remove the sleeve and tap it for a 1/4 pipe thread and put in a nipple to attache the hoze. you prolly want to pull the cover and stuff a rag in there to catch the metal shavings b4 you start.
