Ha! I'm having that exact same issue right now. Been searching posts on it before I posted a new thread. I think the devil himself welded it on there. I'm going to put away the tools and call a priest!

So you removed the castlenut and the tube won't back out of the reciever?

If that's the case, I agree with the poster above that suggested that it has locktite.

Soultion- apply heat to the threads with a heat gun then remove.

If the castle nut is still on there and not backing out, check to make sure that it has not been staked.
