Unhappy HELP! How do I get the DEEP REACH Adpt. out of engine!

I bought a ACTRON Compression Tester @ Sears today ... since we have deeply seated spark plugs ... I used the Deep Seat Adapter ... well of course after doing the first cylinder ... the adapter stayed in the spark plug well !

I tried reattaching the house ... and pulling while unscrewing ... I tried pulling the hose Up as I unscrewed ... it doesn't want to come out.

I called the company ... but no one is in at the moment ... hopefully they will call me back tomorrow morning ... I'll certainly call them as soon as I'm up.

Any suggestions ? The end of the hose that screws into the adapter, is the same diameter of a plug. I was able to check the other cylinder pressures just using the hose ...w/o the Deep Adapter ...

If all else fails, take an old spark plug, put a bit of blue Loctite on the threads and screw it into the adapter. Wait 'til the Loctite cures...use your fingers or a plug socket to unscrew the whole mess.

If you have trouble getting the plug out of the adapter afterwards, e.g. can't clamp it in a vise for whatever reason, heat the joint to 300F, which will liquify the Loctite and you can unscrew the plug. You may want to NOT clean out the threads; the remaining residue may provide enough additional thread friction that the adapter will come out with the tester next time...
