I need some help.

I did my winter duties to the boat and noticed the petcocks did not seem to be opening and closing correctly. Well I have been getting the boat ready for the season and I decided to replace them. I put the boat in the water Sunday to take a test spin and they were leaking pretty bad. It seems I tightened them too much. Well now I have screwed up the plastic fitting going into the engine. The new fitting was toast so I try to loosen the plastic fitting and I twisted it off. Well now I have to get that plastic out of there. Anyway to saw that thread or put something that will dissolve the plastic. Any ideas. The teflon tape will not let the threads turn at all. I do not want to mess anything else up so I need your expertise.

Where do you get these plastic fittings?
