I'm having several issues removing an old widespread faucet from my sink and could use a hand in naming a few pieces and trying to determine if I can remove this thing with existing tools or will i have to cut it out with a rotary tool.
Lets look at some pics shall we, top half of the photo is the faucet with the pfister marquis styled handle covers removed.
Bottom left of image is of stem underneath handle, I can't unscrew that rounded, bronze colored cap, have sprayed copious amounts of WD40 on there, not sure if loosening that nut will allow access to area that can help in removing handle from topside.
Bottom right of image is of down stem and brass fittings from underneath. The basin nut is something I have never seen or heard of, can't find n image of it online. Would be nice if someone could point me to the name of that thin threaded nut with the square notches in it:
Even if I had a tool to loose that nut (basin wrench will not grab ahold of it due to its slim profile), how would I remove that brass tee fitting there? It doesn't look like that tee is section is attached to anything, looks like all one piece. when I used the basin wrench the tee fitting, the whole thing spun around together. So I'm officially confused and a bit frustrated after looking at this situation for 3 hours. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
