Walt, had the exact problem with mine. I used Liquid Wrench, too. Sprayed it on, let it sit for about an hour and then grabbed that sucker and twisted and pulled for all it's worth. It came loose all at once and I about fell on my arse...
(by the way, picking up the pics of the "pumpkin" tomorrow.) I don't know that I did anything diffent than you, just got lucky, I guess.
