Power Steering Hose

Went to the junkyard yesterday and pulled the big hose for the power steering from a junked 240. Today I pulled the banjo bolt, harness and the hose brackets at the bottom but I could not get the bolt on the bottom where the hardline connects to the hose to break. Freakin' rounded it off. I tried everything and every way to get enough leverage to break it but that POS bolt would not turn. Can't tell you how pissed off I am right now but if anyone has any other suggestions let me know. My only other alternative is to take it to a shop...that sucks!!!

Tried it. In fact, at the junkyard I used vise-grips and one whack from a 3lb. hammer to break the bolt loose. Tried them on the bolt for the hose in my car to no avail. Up to this point I have made every mod, put on every part(some with friends) and fixed everything that needed to be fixed myself so I am not looking forward to taking my car to a mechanic shop, especially for something so simple as a hose swap. I'm pisssseeedddddd!!!!!
