Howdy doody folks,
I need to replace washers, etc., in a tub facet and running into old timers disease. The knob says Price Pfister but they were replaced and the stem could be anything.
It's been a long time since I did this and am suffering from old timer's syndrome compounded by Dunlap's disease (belly done lapped over my belt)....
I removed the packing nut but can't budge the bonnet with a socket wrench. Also tried turning stem with vice grips but can't budge it either. I'm not trying real hard at this point just in case I'm fixing to break something.
Can't find diddly squat on the Price Pfister site. Regular hardware stores helpers are usual good help but not this time.
Anyway, I would appreciate some sage advice how to get the stem out.
Here are some photos of the stem.
