    Use a torch to heat it up and a lubricant , it will come apart real quick !

    I use Kroil to loosen up stuck parts. I have used it on threads that are rusted for many years and the stuff never fails to free up even the most frozen parts within a few hours! WD is kids stuff in comparison to Kroil

    Although it never hurts to have a torch handy and some 2 foot pipe wrenches for those extra tough jobs.
