thanks to both you gentleman.
on Ebay I found a wall mount faucet at 35 gpm. This is for a service/industrial type sink, however will work quite well for the tub I purchased. The swivel spout is a plus.
For the drain assembly I saw locally for about $40. The brass version was $50. Both of these stipulated 18 inch.
It seems doing my plumbing homework is paying off.
: : : this is how I found this message board because I bought a bargain American Standard whirlpool tub at Home Depot except the sales people want to sell me the "ONLY" faucet that will work for the tub for $200+ dollars. The tub doesn't even have pre-drilled holes on the deck and specifies not to drill your own.

: I always drill my holes for deck mounts.I've not seen instructions that say not to drill your own and don't know why it is said. You can use a wall mount faucet with an extended spout if compatible with your tub.
