If it doesn't look rusty, give the PB time to do it's job. A minimum of 24 hours. Patience pays off when dealing with this kind of problem.

Ian and I rarely see the kind of corrosion you guys experience back east. The two parts may have become one by now. You may just have to cut it off.

Use a fine bristle wire brush and clean the exposed threads as clean as possible and try PB Blaster again, letting it soak for a day. If that doesn't do it, you are looking at heat.
