Tough situation MO, about the only way I've gotten out of it is to either soak the fitting with some good penetrating oil then work it back and forth with a wrench while continuing to hose it down with the penetrating oil, or like you mentioned cut it out and splice around it.

He's going to want to use it with the line connected in place, so I hope the damn thing is small enough to use under the vehicle.
