I believe I have about a dozen of that model
still laying in mothballs
it sounds like you have gutted the valve stem by trying to
turn the cam..if the copper lines behind it are leaking......
send me a pic of your exact faucet and I might have
something new laying around somewhere.
let me know if you are interested and I will rummage for one.
Well, if you were within my driving radius, I would repair THAT faucet for you. I do it frequently, even for other plumbers who abuse the faucet. IF you are going to the trouble of replacing the faucet body, why don't you just bite the bullet and install a SAFE modern pressure balanced valve with polished brass trim?

Master plumber mark may have a replacement valve but since i submitted my post i removed the threaded piece that attaches to the valve with three copper tubes. I will try to repair using three new copper tubes and solder to valve.

I recently had a similar problem with my old Delta. The diverter plunger or pin wore out and while there is a repair plunger available, I had an antique brass trim and the plunger only came in chrome. The old trim was really showing its age as well, so I just installed a new valve body and a 17T trim kit. Of course this was much nicer looking and it has the anti-scald adjustment as well. This might be a good time for you to do a replacement, too.

Well, there is a big difference between polished brass, and gold, so I understand why he wants to keep it!
