Use a curved or 90 degree pick, some vice grips and a hammer?  Never tried to remove one.

I had lees fittings which were aluminum.  They weren’t really pressed in. I used a tap. Just twisted until it bit and it pulled right out.

these were the same ones that came from our LEE group purchase a million years ago... maybe they were aluminum.

I will give this a shot.

with all this nice weather and this being the only thing left keeping me from driving it- i'm suddenly a lot more motivated.

That's ok, we're trying to birth this baby! (but I'm not edgy or worried or anything, calm really).

 PFFFFT, He can probably buy 100 acres, and build his own track  for the price of a house in Seattle.

I bought a Red-Head box to replace my blown box on my '77 K20. It was more expensive than the auto-part store one, but in my opinion it was worth it! The quality of the build is evident.

I got a stock box I took out of My Chevelle, free if you want it for a core. IDK if that helps in anyway.

its ok, i have the one i took out of this car as a core if i need it. I had another one i used for the core exchange when i bought this one.

I'm willing to do the autozone warranty exchange lotto one more or maybe two more times, then I'll just take it to redhead and let them rebuild it for more $$.
