In response to Re: broken outdoor faucet
: In order to fix a continuous leak, I removed the inside of my Nibco Frost Free sillcock and replaced the washer on the end inside the house. However, when screwing the brass nut back on, it seems the threads have now cross threaded and it will not go back on. Is there any way to repair this?? Also, the packing washer (I believe it is called) was next to impossible to get back in, perhaps it swelled up? Should I replace this part as well? My main concern however is with the cross threading. Thank you.

unfortunately, the pipe on the inside is above a finished sheetrock basement. sounds like I don't have much of a choice other than cutting it out and replacing it.
