Heater water outlet tube connector

Hey guys
I have a 2001 F150 with the v-6 engine. A couple of days ago the truck started leaking water and overheating. I figured it was the waterpump so I replaced it, come to find out that wasn't the problem. When I was refilling the radiator water started pouring out and i found a broken aluminum elbow piece that connects the heater water outlet tube to the manifold under the throttle body. I got the replacement part but the problem is there is about an inch worth of aluminum pipe stuck in my manifold that i cannot get out. It is in a difficult spot an I do not have a lot of room to work with, any suggestions on getting it out?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Does the 2001 have the cast aluminum intake manifold?

If so, then I think I know the aluminum nipple you are talking about. It is used to circulate water through a small jacket in the intake manifold. If you look, you should see another nipple that returns the water from the manifold back to the coolant circuit.

Back when I had my 2000, I can't remember exactly why now, but I woud up just bypassing the circulation through the manifol. I hooked the "goes otta" to the "goes inta" and never had any problem or notice any difference in performance.
