well, another thought

I believe the rotating part of this valve to be a male taper and the body of the valve to be a female taper. I do not know what holds these two pieces together; I am wondering if a minor amount of upward pressure (tap it with a hammer handle) applied to the outlet of the valve would make it easier to turn? of course over exertion here may require you to replace it... but if said valve is constructed like a water jug spigot, then it would have tapered pieces.

This was my question, but you guys went elsewhere. Because no one is saying they replaced it, and certainly no photos so far. I am not sure it matters what year, both my 85 and 95 have had this small spigot, that is similar to water jug spigots. How about it-anyone replace this dang thang with a easy to get to/operate valve?
Have you ever seen such an animal? That'd be nice. But, you still gotta know how to get to it before you can do anything.
