    First, submerse the block in hot water, hot enough to losen up the threads. Try to use snap ring plier (this plier works opposite to the regular pliers) to grip on the inside wall of the brokent piece.

    Good luck!

    P.S.: let me know if it works.

    take the block off... as in dismantle everything.

    Get a hand saw and just cut the inside into halves or smaller pieces and bobs your uncle.. it'll come out

    It partially worked for now! It's maybe 1/4 the way out but with the "tool" I am using I am trying not to damage it, so I'm taking my time with it... heh.

    GOOD!
    Get new replacements, about $2-$5 for the crome (I think) looking one or you can find a brass one at your local home hardware (Home Depot, etc...). The brass one cheaper.

    You sure they are not custom made by swiftech? What I was wondering, could even replace them?

    Like Smith said, take your water block and the old bard to Home Depot to try out. You might won't find the same thread lenght of of the bard. Who knows until you try it.
