Question about Plumbing
How do I remove valve stem from Speakman 2 handle shower faucet (1960's vintage) to replace washer? After removal of packing nut, stem unscrews but does not come out.
Keep unscrewing, to the left. Past the point that would normally be the full "on" position for the valve. I've just removed my Speakman Kent shower stem, and because it is damaged where the washer attaches, will have to replace it (both of them).

There may be two nuts,one for the stem and one for the stem barrel.if not then the stem does just screw out,may just have a build up of something on it,try and working it back and forth to try and break it loose,careful not to damage anything.
