Stuck shower valve stem

Can anyone recommend product to spray on stuck shower stem? I am having difficulty removing a shower stem that has probably been in place since 1970's in Florida where we have lots of calcifcation. The shower stem is not designed like others I have removed in the past with hexagonal wrench. It has two flat sides that fit 1/2" wrench. I am open to other suggestions. I have just retiled this tub surround and don't want to grout it in case I have to rip some out. Thanks
