The outside of the house is vinyl siding. I have a hose spigot where it attaches to the pipe, that seam is below the vinyl siding. What's more, I can't get the screw off to remove the handle. It's an old brass spigot with a metal handle that looks like a wheel. I've tried using liquid wrench on it and tapping it, which didn't work. Using a torch to loosen it will not work as it's 2mm from the vinyl siding.
Anyone have any other ideas to replace the handle? The spigot works fine but the handle is broken. I have a new metal handle I just want to replace the hold handle.
Should I drill out the screw and replace it? What are the screw specs for the replacement screw?
EDIT: The screw for the spigot handle requires a flathead screwdriver. It must be ancient. House was built in the 1950s but I think the spigot is newer than that.
I also have an air compressor but no air tools for it. If that helps.
EDIT: Adding images of the outside spigot in question.
