Default Need help with AK-47 gas block, torch?

I have a WASR AK and the gas block was all over the place. I straightened the cant but I now see that the top part where the piston goes in is actually twisted a little. Can I heat the 45 degree part that goes from the barrel portion of the gas block to the piston portion, with a torch until red hot and gently twist it a little until straight?

It's OK to laugh first

if it is just the removeable gas tube then get another one. if its the block trough the frame of the weapon that i cant help with.

although your blowtorch idea might work and if you feel ok to fire it more power to you. good luck
