    Any help identifying the attached diverter and stems from a 3 handle system would be greatly appreciated as would sources for rebuild kits or replacements.

    thanks

    BTW - I brought it to a local plumbing supply and they said the broach count was that of a sterling, but I cannot find any sterling matches. Thanks again for looking.

    The broach count is NOT unique to any one brand, so Sterling just happens to be one with that parameter.

    I know you're trying to save some money by repairing what you have, but maybe it's time to go to something that meets current safety codes (anti-scald) and update the control valve. To cover the existing holes, they do make remodel or repair plates that would then allow you to install a new, single-handle valve that adds those features.

    Yes - I understand these are old and upgrading is a reasonable alternative. But, these have lasted for 50 years and if I can rebuild or replace them there seems no reason that I can't get a lot more time from them. I don't know how long the new single control systems last but I doubt it is that long.

    Again, thanks to anyone who can help id these.
