Stuck threaded diverter tub spout

I have a diverter tub spout that failed and I tried to twist if off but it wonít budge. I know it is a threaded spout because I canít find a setscrew anywhere on the on the outside. The diverter pull is positioned towards the back instead of the front. Everything Iíve researched shows that removing it should be as simple as turning it counter clockwise but I cannot get it to budge. How the heck do I get it off without damaging the pipes?

Re: Stuck threaded diverter tub spout

Look on the bottom side of the spout near the wall, is there a 1/2 of an oval shaped hole?
If not there is no screw.
What are you using to try and remove it?
