But in this case, there is already movement in the cup - all that's
needed is a little extra space for the movement of the cup in the
bracket shell to allow the corrosion to be ground down a bit finer by
working the joint back and forth.

I wonder whether a couple of hours soaking in a solution of CLR (Calcium
Lime Rust household cleaner) would help?

I had never come across CLR. How effective is it in removing heavy
lime deposit in pipes?

No idea, John.

I wondered. I've got a house drain line that has white deposits that
reduce the water flow considerably. I tried about everything I could
think of to dissolve them and so far no success. I had hoped you were
suggesting a solution.

A previous house we owned, in the same area, had lime deposits in the
water pipes so severely that we finally had the house replumbed. I am
afraid something similar is happening here.
