Is the hardline held in place by red loctite!?

I can't, for the life of me, remove the air fittings. Hairdryer didn't work. May have to try boiling water if it's red loctite.

I’ve removed mine before and don’t recall there being red Loctite nor do I recall it being difficult. Try more leverage perhaps?

Hmmm... I bought this second-hand, so maybe the previous owner used loctite.

I used enough force to start stripping the metal off the fittings; any more and I fear I'd risk damaging the threads.

The hardline uses a compression fitting, it’s a black rubber piece. To hold the fitting to the hardline. Now as far as the fitting to the marker body either tape or blue loctite should be used.

I’m pretty sure he means the NPT threaded part where it goes into the body.

My advice would be that stuff like that isn’t really meant to be R&Red. I’d probably buy another valve back rather than take the 90 out of mine.

Yes, I was referring to the fittings as they're connected to the valve and vasa.

I wanted to replace the SS hardline with my own aluminum tube + CCM fittings, as others have done.

I can't remove either fitting (valve back / vasa).

Spare parts aren't easy to come by right now, unfortunately.
