Brass pipe broke in half - replacement?

After attempting to tighten the brass tube into the aluminum heating block to prevent the leakage you see, the brass piece broke in half. Is there a way I can get a replacement or do I have to purchase all 4 pieces for a new head? (aluminum heating block, nozzle, brass pipe, and PEEK)

ouch! I was so close to doing the same. Glad I stopped at the right moment.

I'd say you need a new brass pipe and the peek. The Teflon, heating block and nozzle will be ok.

Just heat the aluminum and use a wrench to get the brass out of the aluminum block
