I just got back from Lowe's across town and the guy there suggested one
of two things:
1) Get a longer stem or a stem extension from a Kohler supply store
2) Get a shorter collar from a Kohler supply store (I forget what
they're really called...the chrome flared piece that is screwed onto
the stem via a white plastic adjustable sleeve)
Is there anything I should be aware of here, or is this sound advise?
With that long of a piece extending from my manifold and mounting onto
fiberglass, should I be providing any other support?
Thanks for any suggestions.
I've given up and bought a new single valve and will be sweating pipe
this weekend ;-) I got tired of running around town and the local
supply store gave me a valve for ~$70, which was good enough for me.
Now I'll have a new shiny handle for my new bath tub, anyway.
Thanks for your time.
