Jerry: Bless your heart...It is Scriptural to help the Widows, Orphans and Needy in your community.
It is also Scriptural " There is a time for the gathering of things, and a time for the casting away of things". Cast that Puppy and find a
suitable replacement for the Widow.
Consider the expense in time ,energy, effort and money to rejuvenate a 20 year old faucet.
When all the dust settles, it will still be a twenty year old faucet. Wouldn't it make more sense to invest those energies and money to replace this faucet and let it go on to its' eternal reward for a lifetime of good and faithful service.
I would be happy to help in this worthy cause, please advise on what is needed to make this an effective and lasting replacement. Bud.

: 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 ??
