does anyone know what's happpening here ? I'm trying to change a
washer on a tap -- I disassemble the beast, take the stem out and reach
inside and grab the top of the nylon washer with some needle nose
pliers and whip it out. I said WHIP IT OUT! Damn! It won't come out
-- it will rise most of the way but the disk of the washer won't fit
through the hole in the body of the tap (which accepts the stem
What is going on here? I checked the hot tap too, and it's identical
-- the washer's too big to remove. I looked to see if the tap was had
for some reason a top section holding the washer in and that needed to
be removed, but I can't see anything obvious.
I'm confused and don't feel "Fawcett 1 - Peter 0" is an acceptable
result -- any idea what could be going on?
