Gerber two handle shower faucet sleeve stuck

I am trying to repair a leak in the shower spigot. Iíve removed the handle which broke. Iím now unable to remove the several inch long ďsleeveĒ that the stem sits inside of. I thought it should simply unscrew. Iíve tried unscrew by hand, sprayed with clr, heated lightly with a torch, put a pipe wrench on. Any tips on how to get this piece off? Images below. Itís a gerber circa 1970 two handle.

I got it... I had to screw in a piece to the exposed end, then use the pipe wrench on the new piece. Came right off. Now to hunt for a new stem...
