    Damn! I have changed many of those, but I have never had one snap off. I feel your pain, man.

    An inside pipe wrench wouldn't take it out?

    I drilled it out and re-tapped with a pipe tap.
    Had to open the carb up and clean out any shavings that made their way inside.
    I wish I had an inside pipe wrench..

    Harbor freight as an inexpensive set of them, just be careful as they break easily (as all HF stuff does) but they are good for removing broken brass or aluminum fittings.
    A set of tool steel ones are, in my opinion, worth their weight in gold though.
