1920's American Standard Shower Valve Won't Come Offf
Posted by Matt on June 24, 2002 at 22:05:00:
I have a shower stall in our 1926 home where both the hot and cold valves leak. I tried to take of the hardware
to rebuild it, but the handles won't come off. I've removed the index button (little 'H' sign) and the handle screw.
At that point it looks like the handle should come off, but it won't. They're porcelin 'X' shaped handles, and they
appear to be molded around the valve stem.

What am I doing wrong?
