shower arm


All of those type pipes are 1/2" pipe thread. What came out?
Does the new one look the same?
Is the old pipe broken off inside the wall?

Sometimes the fitting in the wall is slightly tweaked and it is hard to start the new thread. Could this be the case?

How about a photo of the old pipe.
