    mine was so stuck when I had to remove it for the header install it didn't want to come off. I used a line wrench since its soft brass. As for your line yeah that sounds like a plan(follow it).

    yeah i found it and you're right... its damn soft and I cant get it it budge... wtf is a line wrench?

    could i just cut the line and get a ratchet on it for more grip... if im getting a new guage anyway?
