I have several old sinks in a house I'm working on and I think I probably need to replace or at least rebuild a few of these valves. But I'm not sure of the make much less the model.

Can anyone ID these?

Edit: this is the US. Probably installed in the late 70s

    I think your best bet would be to take it to a plumbing supply store. They'll not only know the part, they'll have or will be able to get replacements. Don't bother with your local home stores.

    BTW - Don't be a d**k and just use the locals for identification then buy your parts online. You want that store to still be there in the future, pay them their $3 for each gasket. You're paying for the knowledge, the rubber is almost free.

    I agree with Jack and Kyle I have been buying rebuild parts for over 40 years to repair valves like this my kit is a stainless metal box that tells you how old it is I just replace the packings and washers, that kit has saved me probably thousands, the washer on the end and possibly some valve stem packing is all it probably needs possibly a new oring.

For anyone who stumbles on this, I went to two plumbing parts houses in town, the first one with the fancy showroom had no idea what it was and spent a couple minutes flipping through a catalog before giving up, the second old warehouse one the guy took a quick look and said "it's a chicago faucets quaturn" but they don't carry that line. So he printed out the part sheet for me and I found them on Amazon for $28 a pair. Thanks for all your comments and help!

The gasket kits to rebuild this cartridge cost more than the new cartridge, but I'm going to get a kit or two anyway since I've been burned with "new" cartridges that are all plastic when the old ones were all brass.
