:( help with Barb on ram
So, I have a STO ram, I wanted to put a QEV on the front barb, and the hex bolt stripped on the damn thing. So then I used pliars...which stripped more, and eventually took the nipple off the barb.
Next I cut a slot in it, and tried to flat head screw drive it out....broke one side of the nut head off...so I cut the other side off to have only a flush front barb to the ram.( Just threads inside with nothing outside to grip)
Then I drilled a hole in the inside of the barb, and attempted to insert an easy out and extract the barb.
Now the easy out is stuck in the ram, and the end of the easy out is stripped now as well...WTF!
How do I get this SOB out, or do I just drill it out and re-tap?
