Question about Plumbing
I had to replace my handles on the Valley II Y28405-74 wide set lavatory faucets that we have all around our home but the problem is that the replacement handles do not have the ''stops'' that keep the handle from just turning around a full 360 degrees. The original handles were molded with a piece that came down and hit the stop on the stem to keep them from turning around. Is there some way to modify the new handles so that they will hit the built in stops on the stems?
Check with a local plumbing supply or decent hardware store (Ace) to see if they have handle inserts that will do the job. Don't know about Danco handles but I sourced some for another brand that worked well.

I have extracted the legend of figure 5B of the installation instruction here for your reference:
Remove handle from the faucet by loosening set screw (1) and pulling off handle. Once handle is removed, loosen set screw (2) from the bottom of the handle, remove accent (3), replace with new accent, tighten set screw (2), replace handle on faucet and tighten set screw (1).
