Walbro Carburator-- How to remove broken fuel inlet plastic nipple?

Can someone please give me advice on how to remove the plastic inlet nipple on a 20cc dle rc gas engine? I think the carburator on this engine is a very common one used on many garden power tools. I know it is pressed in and tried to pull it out with vise grip pliers. All that has has done is pull the plastic elbow off.

Posting a picture of what your talking about would be a big help.

This is a copy of the metal nipple I have ordered to take the place of the plastic one that broke. The is the part the gas tank's fuel line plugs into on the side of the carburator. This is my first time to send a picture. Hope this works.

Got it out! I ran a 4-40 tap into the hole in brass and made threads. I put a
4-40 1 1/4 inch screw into the whole and closed a vise so that it would let the screw stick up between the jaws. The frame of the carburator suspended under the jaws so that it couldn't pull through the vise. I used a small pry bar and the nipple pulled out easily.
