Eljer slantback lavatory faucet
I am unable to pull the outer chrome plated handle of the faucet hot water cutoff (06890630 part no.) from the brass adapter (06890550) underneath. Normally, the metal retainer (06890552) can be pushed in, and the chrome handle (sleeve) will pull off. It appears to be corroded to the brass unit adapter. I have drilled a hole above the adapter and squirted liquid wrench over the top of the adapter, but am still unable to get the two parts (handle and adapter) to separate. Therefore, I cannot remove the stem and bonnet assembly to repair it.
