Stuck shower head
I am trying to install a new shower head but the old one is stuck. I've removed the shower head itself but there is a ball nut that allowed the shower head to swivel attached to the pipe from the wall that will not come off. I have tried WD-40 but it will not come off. The shower head was installed in the early to late 70's. It looks as though the ball is a complete second piece, but is it a part of the pipe? Does this ball come off at all or do I have to cut the pipe and go from there? Help!

The ball is part of the arm, you have to unscrew the entire arm out of the wall and replace it with a new arm that will have thread on both ends.
