    Looks like some jackleg broke a tool off in it. I would try smacking it with a punch and hammer, then try twisting it out with vise grips.........good luck!

    Yep 2nd the vice grips. I had a similar situation on an ATV carb and used a dremel to cut two notches in each side. Then removed it with a flat head screwdriver. This made it easier to get in and out in the future.
