Can tub diverter valve be removed? (two tap style)
circa 1966 Elger tub, with hot & cold taps and shower diverter in the center.
There is a piece of junk from the corroded bibb seat rattling around in there; it blocks flow. Which might be lived with except sometimes it blocks only the hot or only the cold; making it impossible to set a temperature.
If I pull the handle... what next? Can I get the thing out and look around for the piece of junk?
Handle really on tight after 50 years of hard, acid water & soap scum...so is it worth the effort?
