Here's a different method, if you grind the tip of a 5/16 or 8mm Allen socket into a flat blade screwdriver point, you can easily tap it into broke off 1/4" brass fittings and use a ratchet to quickly remove them on the job. I break off quite a few over the life of the tool because I like female QC's on my wands, no matter how hard I try not to. I stick with brass on wands because I want it to bust before the SS valve does.

Stop @ Jim Davisson. I got lost at " Here is a different method...is the allen socket grade 9 or higher ?
I don't consider myself mechanically inclined, but with help of think tanks and superior determination to save , in last 10 years , I spent close to nothing to support mechanics . I wish I had Hercules muscles, I would figure out way to get TM inside of my van.

The problem is, no Egyptians around. I've survived Polar vortex with a cracked demand pump, how are you dealing with a scorching heat?
