Question about Plumbing
I have an old 1933 Brass faucet and the center lever is leaking. I need guidance how to remove the center lever and what might e the cause of the leak
This is called the diverter if it is a tub/shower valve. There are just too many brands to say just how it comes out. Remove the handle. You may need a handle puller. Remove the trim. This varies. If I had a picture, I could tell you how to do this. You will then probably need a deep plumber's socket to remove the stem. Make the stem is turned all the way counter clockwise before unscrewing the stem. Go to a good old time plumber shop or hardware store to get a new stem.

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

you will have to replace the ball assembly with a repair kit
1 turn the water off under the sink (hot and cold)
remove the handle ( you may need an allen head wrench to remove a hex screw or you may have to take a channel lock pliar and unscrew achrome
nut over the ball mechanism
after the handle comes off there is usually some type of lock nut that you must remove to remove the ball mechanism
remove the ball (usually chrome or brass(ther are usually little springs and rubber washers under ball
take ball and washer to ACe or lowes and match the pieces (usually sold as a kit
follow directions and installl
turn water on and pat yo!ur self on the back !

Yes, a cartridge will probably solve it. There are two different Moen cartridges so be sure to take the old one with you so you get the correct one.

I have the same problem. The part that is needed is found with a simple Google search for "Delta Waterfall RP22934 O-Rings"
Simply Slide the collar up at the base of the spout where it swivels.
Gently open the now exposed split plastic retainer so that the tabs near the bottom are pulled from their holes.
Lift the spout off the base to expose the o-rings.
Replace with the new o-rings and apply o-ring grease.
Re-assemble and enjoy a dry sink area.
