Water intake power washer fix?

Bought a 3100 psi generac power washer from amazon. It runs great but the water intake leaked then blew off ( plastic ). I would like to replace it with a brass one - saw the part listed but don't know how to change it. Could send it back but it would be a hassle. I wish they would have not used plastic threads?  Does anyone know how to change it? Thanks for any help!

Did the pipe break off or blow out of the hole? It should be iron pipe thread, if broken you should be able to chip the stub out with a small screw driver. Use Teflon thread tape when installing the replacement

Could you post the model number as I would like to research the pump's setup. I personally have not seen pressure washer using a plastic intake tube. Most have been die cast aluminum on the cheaper pumps.
 
As Roy it should be NPT threaded but may either straight or taper. I would first try an extractor before trying to chip it out.
 
Must had been damage for it finish breaking. Normal household water pressure should not cause it to come off otherwise.

Thanks guys: G0070190 is the model #  It had to be cross threaded from the factory; I'm careful about that stuff. Having trouble uploading images; too big don't know how to shrink?

Ahhh. I see what you're needing to remove to get the black knob off. Remove the washer and screen. down inside is where you use a large hex wrench to unscrew the fitting. Actually the black knob is separate piece. Generac has the PN as 0H956350120.

Normally I see these with a brass insert for the threads.

Thank you! I really need to replace with a brass peace - plastic threads not a good choice. I saw a listing on ebay for one that is suppose to fit both craftman and generac? Amazon has one listed for generac not currently availible.
I see how to take it off now - thank you very much!
