if it is 25 yrs old it might be to your favor to just replace the fixture.parts for something this old may be hard to find good luck.

Silly question, but did you turn the shut offs back on after installing? If so, the aerator is probably clogged (the screen on the faucet). Unscrew it and clean it out. Good luck

SOURCE: I have an american standard
The single handled faucets have a valve cartridge which needs to be replaced when it leaks. Disassemble the handle to find the valve inside. Take the valve to the hardware store to be sure you get the right one and reassemble. To disassemble, pop the cap off the lever, unscrew the single screw, then use slip-joint pliers to loosen the retainer nut. lift the cartridge out with pliers taking note of the direction of the notch at the top of the stem. Be sure to reassemble with the notch facing in the same direction. You should replace and lubricate the O-rings when you change the valve cartridge.
Since you have the numbers for that particular faucet, you might want to call around to find the cartridge first. Different models have different valves, so be sure yours is correct.
