In response to Re: stem removal
: I have a two-handled, shower-only Eljer faucet that I can no longer crank hard enough on the hot water handle to keep it from dripping from the showerhead. I've removed the handle and packing nut (with a great deal of effort) but cannot get the darn stem out! Does the stem unscrew or is it just supposed to pull out? Aaaaaaaack!!!

it does unscrew. if you don't have one you will need a deep socket to turn it out. replace the washer and the seat.
