I cracked the very fitting you are speaking of when changing the donuts on my up pipes. I started my truck only to find a huge flood of fuel running all over my shop floor. I was able to get the broken one out with an easy out.
I went to a hardware store and found a brass 90 degree fitting but, it was way to larger to turn without hitting the up pipe. So, i made about 15 trips to the belt sander,taking a little off at a time until it would turn. The good news is, I was able to make it work and didn't have to pull the up pipe clamp back off (you don't want to do that if possible).
I can send you a picture of what I came up with tomorrow if it would help.
Good luck, I know this job is a pain but, we're here with you!
