That thing is hard to break loose. I took and put the injector in a vise and used an impact on the part you are talking about. I tried with a 1/2 ratchet but it would turn in the vise, that's how tight it is. It's a pain to break free but it will break free.

I'm sure there's another way to hold the injector besides a vise. The one i took apart was already bad so i didnt care about scarring it up.

tool for injector take apart

the tool to hold it in a vise may be like the 7.3 tool sold by rosewood diesel. It is two plates that fit in a vice that have a nub that goes in the holes on the side of the injector.
