Kitchen Faucet Removal - '66 Trade Wind
I learned today what happens when you have a zinc nut on a brass valve with a steel back up washer. After 48 years they all become inseparable! It made the simple job of removing the kitchen faucet a nightmare. I soaked the threads for two days to no avail.
I thought sure my 1 1/16 socket would break the nut loose, or break the housing, but no. I finally had to saw it off, all while working under the kitchen sink.
I post this as a warning to those who have a "honey do" list for the trailer that says "new kitchen faucet". Sounds easy, but you should procrastinate as LONG as possible.
