No, you'll have to turn the water off. The head will rotate around the stem, but when it comes off there's nothing left to hold the stem in place.

I too agree, the water should be off.

Can you reword this question? I don't understand Head and Conjection. These terms are unfamiliar to me with this question. Enlighten me please. As you already have replies, it must be just me.

He's working on a yard hydrant, where the head and plunger assembly is screwed onto a 1" galvanized pipe.
