I am trying to remove my old steel braided hose from my expansion chamber.  The hose was loctited and now the hex is rounded from unsuccessful loosening attempts.

Sounds fun. Who loctited it? Whoever it was, slap them, even if it was you.

Try some channel lock pliars, the fitting is already a loss so just dig in. Try heating the threaded area with a torch, heat will break loctite.

Try searching next time, I had the EXACT same problem, surprisingly, Enos is the one who helped me as well, I used a bench-mounted C-clamp, and stuck the part the hose was connected to in that, then torched the threads, then attached vice-grips(while-wearing some gloves), to the area I'd just heated, then twisted.

It aint about black or white
