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
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.
