    Success! The faucet was easy to disassemble and reassemble with new O-rings and parts from the standard Delta repair kit. Soaking everything in vinegar took off most of the copper...

    I may have the number wrong up top. There is also a '174' on the manual, so that might be the number. It may not be a hex nut, but I used a hex wrench to remove it, so it is some sort of hex. Maybe a...

    Soldered, you are correct.

    I have no license. I do have a rebuild kit from home depot ($7.50).

    I'm not looking for long term function here, as I will likely be selling the house soon.

    The current shutoff valves are welded to copper pipes. These connect to the faucet via brass screw-on fittings and more copper pipes.

    Yes, replacing with a newer model (this one is discontinued so parts need to be mail ordered) would likely be less expensive if I can find one that has similar hookups (or some kind of adapters and...

    I'm not the original owner. I already bought a new spout and sprayer ($108.00). The rest looks ok, aside from whatever I knocked loose (or busted) it just needs cleaning, but the handle assembly is...

    You must be better at sweet-talking the Delta reps. She did give me 25% off, whatever that means.

    Thanks, that worked. (The faucet spout had to be replaced because the plastic retainer that keeps it in place wore out and the spout itself had corrosion holes in it.)

    I'll look into the deltas for replacement.

    In terms of the gap I can push it flush then it bounces back to 1/8".

    The spout is on tight. I haven't tried a wrench on it just hand pressure so far.

    Ok, Ill try a clear silicone seal for now. If that doesn't work I'll think about wrenching off the old one and taking the debris to the store to find a new one.

    The spout is hollow so I don't think silicone will be trapped under it that much. Now I need to find out how to do all the sheetrock work.

    Ok, I'll check the dates. Can I put silicone on now as a temporary fix or will that interfere with getting it flush later on? Also, for mold should I use some kind of spray on 'mold remover'.

    It doesn't seem very loose but if I push on it with a lot of force I can get it almost flush.

    For mold I've been letting it dry passively for a month but it probably did develop some dried up...
