HARCRAFT FAUCET REPAIR PARTS
Posted by Jerry Arnold on May 14, 1998 at 21:32:23:
I am helping a widow fix leaky, rusty HARCRAFT lavatory
"COBRA" faucets*.

Where can I obtain the threaded, notched galvanized
steel lock washers that clamp the faucet valve body
to the counter top ( the washers have an inside hole
diameter of 7/8-inch and 20 threads to the inch)?

An alternate clamping method is to use a large washer
and a nut that has an inside hole diameter of 7/8-inch
and 20 threads to the inch.

Where can I obtain such a nut ??

ANY other Suggestions ??

The Chrome inserts to the Lucite faucet handle have
corroded badly and no longer grip the faucet stems.

Where can I get chrome inserts or complete 2-part
Lucite & chrome handles ?

The faucets are connected to "Tee" brass fitting with
plastic, braided flex tubing that have sharp "S" bends
and are about 20 years old. The fittings on the flex
tubing and Tee appear to be female 3/8-inch flair
fittings. I would like to replace these with steel
braided flex tubing, but the plumbing supply shops
don't have such a replacement tubing with flair
fittings.

Is there a simple method to assemble or obtain a
conversion fitting that converts the 3/8-inch male
flair fitting to a 3/8-inch compression fitting so I
can use the standard 8-inch or 12-inch steel braided
flex tubing ??

Or do you know of another method or source to connect
the faucets to the spout with more durable material
than plastic braided tubing ??
