Well, I'm probably giving up on getting the valve out at this time. That set screw is flat out frozen. I've tried wrenching it, I've tried tapping on the Allen wrench to try to free it, and I've had PB Blaster sitting on it for several hours now, and it still feels like a contest between the socket in the head of the screw and the shaft of the Allen wrench as to which one will fail first. There's certainly no evidence that the screw is going to turn. So, I'll clean and lube everything else, and we'll see if there's improvement. If that valve's going to need to come out, then I might have to enlist outside help.
