I bought a Pfister pfirst modern shower trim kit as it's one of the few compatible with my 80's Pfister Avante valve.
I'm discovering now, however, that the included tub spout appears to be the "slip on" style, while the old spout I'd like to replace is the front-end threaded kind that screws on to the threaded pipe.
Looking into the new spot, it seems like the internal slip on component is itself threaded into the front end of the spout and could possibly be just as well unscrewed, however I've been unable to do so with light pressure and don't want to force and break it since it if doesn't work I'll likely return this.
I wanted to ask if anyone has had experience successfully doing this! I guess my other option is to cut the pipe?
