A picture is worth a thousand words

In reply to shower faucet. by Henry in MI on January 25th, 2000 05:52 AM [Go to top of thread]

I have a leaking faucet in the bath tub/shower.

This one is a little different than most styles,
I think it may be an American Standard, but there is no marking.

I can get the top off and the stem flops around and can not be pulled out. There are no other nuts or assemblies that can be taken off.

I went to the hardware store and looked at replacement stems and the American Standard
was the only one that looked anything like this thing.

The house was built in 1969 and I believe that is when this faucet was put in.

I will attempt to draw this here.

Back of faucet || Threaded tube inside
Brass casting || and out
casting goes
through wall
and casting is threaded on the other side.
the packing nut was removed from the
inside of the threaded tube and the stem
can turn and flop around but will not pull
out. Is there a trick to this?

This is not like a normal faucet that
you just put a socket on it and remove the
entire stem assembly.

Help? :)

Thanks Mark
