comment How do we remove a 1940 Crane tub spout base adapter that is inside the wall?
We removed the spout ourselves and it was attached to the adapter. A major plumbing store in our town said the same thing ~ they've never seen anything like it either. We have since called a Plumber to assist us. Unfortunately we will probably need to remove some tile on the tub side to fix this problem, then put a chrome plate over that area ~ tile is very old and can't be matched. There is tile on the other side of the wall in another bathroom so we can't access from there.

I have attached two photos of the spout and adapter.

We will take pictures. In the meantime we have considered using a pipe wrench to remove the adapter ~ which will destroy the threads, but we will need to replace the pipe anyway. We only need to remove the adapter because we need to replace the 1940 spout, and the adapter is not compatible with current spouts on the market. We would prefer to find a Crane 1940 replacement spout but have been unsuccessful.

We are aware of this process, but in addition to the sinking sidewalk it also looks very worn, so we were wanting to give it a 'facelift'.

It will be attached to Hardie siding so should we caulk around the wood block ~ we are new at this.

comment Should we use carpet tape or tack strips?
There is no moisture in the basement, and this carpet is a commercial-grade roll that we already own and want to use up (not something we would otherwise use). When it becomes damaged we will replace it with something else. We have since decided that using carpet strips is the way to go since we will be putting a pad underneath, which might cause slippage to the carpet if using tape only.
