Take the old one with so you can match it when you to get a replacement. You can get these at the big box building supply, a plumbing supply, or a good hardware. The new assembly will most likely have a hex nut in place of the two flat spots.

Or, as someone mentioned earlier the whole assembly may be rebuilt (new washers and packing)

Pay attention to the way the knob turns. If the knobs turn in opposite directions then there is a different part number for both left (hot) and right (cold)

Bathroom Faucet - "Flat Spots"

The "flat spots" are not raised; that whole assembly is down inside the surrounding round piece, below the rim of the surrounding round piece. No wrench is fitting in there.


I am ready to cut the whole sink out and put a new one in, if I can't get this out without damaging the existing sink. Overkill, I know. Grrrr...

Take a combination wrench in which the open end fits the flat spots.
Stand the wrech on its end with the open end stratling the flats.
Use a screw driver in the box end of the wrench as a lever to turn the wrench.

Look close, that round piece may be just a trim ring that threads over the stem, channel locks with slight pressure may work.

I think AlinCal may be right.
The ring probably unscrews.

They may just pop out like the C and H buttons.

I've been looking for an hour, but no luck on that specific faucet. It is OLD, I think it is the original.
This is as close as I can find.

You guys ROCK - thank you for your time and help! I am the computer person and now have to get T.O.M. to try out your suggestions - AFTER he gets done with the new brake system. Trying to find parts that work is difficult for any system!

The Old Man, or maybe I should say The Old Mechanic? We will tackle the sink AFTER the brakes are right! And of course, there are always other things...

Most of the 77 Argosys came from the factory with Streamway faucets. That brand has now become Phoenix Faucets owned by Valterra.
Repair parts like new valve stems are readily available for the Phoenix/Streamway faucets.
For detailed information go to Phoenixfaucets.com.
If repair is possible, it will be easier than complete faucet replacement.
Good luck!

Phoenix Faucets appears to have our faucet! Perhaps they can advise us on how to take it apart before we damage anything. Thank ou for your time and help!

Just replace the black O rings. That should stop the leak if the faucet works ok for you. Be sure to smear Vaseline all over the valve/O rings when reinstalling.
