    I have a small leak coming from the spout.

    I would like to replace ..... instead of fix.

    I will install a ball valve on supply line before starting this project, so the question is...

    Would I be able to "sweat" these fittings off in order to un-screw the old bib?

    Or do some cutting... and replace the whole section?

    I plan on installing a Woodford.

    That male thread is the end of the hose bib, it is sweated onto the copper.

    I'd unsweat it from the elbow and sweat in a female adapter to thread the new one in.
