Question about T & S Brass T&S Brass B-0228 Deck Mixing Faucet - Less Nozzle
The seat probably need either ground flat or replaced. Pull the stem and inspect where the washer seats for grooves or an uneven surface.
They make a seat tool specifically for seat removal but a fairly large allen wrench usually will work if you don't have access to one. If it's not too deep of a groove you can rub it on a piece of fine grit sand paper but make sure it's flat on the surface and not slanted. If it's very deep at all, you will be better off to take it to the local plumbing supply to match it for replacement.
As far as the washer, T&S used slightly different sizes of washers depending on the model but just use the largest one that will fit inside the lip and flush with the bottom of the stem and it will seat well. I generally have better luck with the beveled.
