Shower assembly from 1971 - Would like to work on Diverter Stem
The shower faucet is a 1971 Bradley #8540. About 10 years ago I was able to acquire new stems from Danco and later better 1/4 turn stems from the plumbing store. Now I would like to work on the diverter stem. I can remove the diverter stem, but I am afraid to take the stem apart. As the diagram shows the stem is held together by part #D209 or Seat Washer disc. This piece is about 45 years old. Could I buy the entire diverter stem or somehow carefully take off that disc?
