Using a rod that is close, but free moving in the hole. Grind it a little as shown, you might hacksaw your "line" to avoid a rounded edge, then grind it.

If you can keep the grabber pulled up tight while you "Hammer"---it might not dent/ disfigure the inner end, so it can be pulled on thru

If you can get enough to grab to come out----stop with this tool!

Then find a rod or drill bit that will fit almost snug (DON'T LET IT FALL IN) run some tape around it to keep it topside.

This will keep it from squishing/ slipping loose when you grab it perpendicular with some vice-grip plier and tap on the vise-grips to finish your extraction.

Depending on how tight it is and how much is inside will let my "Whizzy Tool" effectively work.

Otherwise---go find you a pan gasket!

Note---Reinstall the new one???? Stick it in the freezer for a long while to shrink/ contract it.

You might want to try a blind hole puller.
