The cartridge on our Moen Extensa kitchen faucet (model 7560) has gone
on the fritz, so I need to replace it. The trouble is that I can't
even get past step #1, removing the handle. None of my allen wrenches
fit the nut that holds the handle onto the main assembly. Does Moen
use a strange size of hex nut for that particular assembly? Is it
standard or metric size? (my allen wrenches are standard sizes).
Moen Allen nuts appear to be standard sizes. But on some
faucets (e.g. mine) the nut is not aligned with the hole in the
faucet hinge, i.e.the wrench must be cocked up or down before
it can find the nut.
