    Well I took on the challenge and looked through every book and on-line resource i know of and all I've gotten is a case of bug eye...

    The best I can say is it resembles a Harco stem sometimes it you pursue them like that you get results.

    I do know of a machine shop that will make a stem to match a sample for a price. Probably fairly hefty! PM me if you want that info.

    I sent pics to noels and they don't have any idea what it is. Sorry but you may not be able to find it. It may be an import.

    About Diverter Cartridge Assy 74392

    BoneFisher,

    I'm glad you found your part. I have probably that same diverter (new). However, mine will not stay pushed in. Did you ever have that problem and if so, how did you solve it?

    Thanks
    Ron

    Thank you very much for updating us on your success! This was a poser. Kohler has made so much weird stuff over the years, some of us have never seen the half of it! Guillens is a good outfit. They have particulary good info on the Flushmate issues.
