American Standard bath faucet

I have an older am stand single handle bath/shower faucet that leaks. I can get the handle and cover off but cannot get the the stem out. There are no clips so I assume it unscrews? I am afraid it will break with force needed to unscrew. I have soaked with Kroil oil with no luck. Does anyone know how to get this out to replace washer?Faucet is probably 30 years old.

I have old Am Standard shower/tub shut-offs in 2 separate baths. I've replaced washers on both. Stems will unscrew in standard direction (lefty-loosey, righty-tighty). If really stuck, try abit of heat from propane torch while turning. Don't melt the washer or burn the house down!

Thanks, but I found out there are 2 machine screws holding the assembly to valve body and these have to be removed and then stem comes out from behind. Glad they don't make them like that anymore. Guy at plumbing supply said it was single handle push pull from the sixties.
