i did it with having the msd off so i can see what i'm doing, easier to maneuver that way but it also never put up a fight on me from what i can remember. looks like you broke something from the looks of that pic though, i could be wrong.

Looks like you actually pulled the fitting out of the manifold itself.

That's exactly what happened. Any ideas on how to get that fitting off so I can stick it back in the manifold?

I'll be honest I don't think that fitting is salvageable. If you do get it back in more than likely it will leak. You may be better off doing your own custom fitting and booster line at this point.

It’s salvageable. I did the same thing. First separate the fitting from the hose. Put a *VERY SMALL AMOUNT! of rtv of those teeth. Wood/rubber mallet and lightly tap it in. Give the rtv some time to dry then reinstall the hose BEFORE installing the manifold.

Update. I ordered these fittings and will attempt to retap the manifold. Any advice?

Update. Great success with the new fitting (pictured above). I used a 1/2" 14 NPT tap to make the brake booster hole in the back of the manifold bigger to accurately accept the new fitting. I was very nervous attempting this at first but it went in and did the job very nicely. I removed the old busted plastic fitting off of the hose and it slid in the new fitting and locked in place perfectly.

Nice job on tapping a new line. The OEM fitting is BS. You have to push the collar toward the teeth while also pulling the hose. Feels like a 3 handed job. But now you have me thinking of tapping a proper fitting for reassurance.

once the brake booster line goes in that fitting on the msd manifold, it becomes one with the manifold. i sold one of my msd manifolds with that line still attached bc i didn't want to destroy it attempting removal. good news is, it's just a vacuum line. most any idea will work.
