Default Help identify this faucet stem/seat

I need help trying to identify this faucet stem/seat. Its aprox 20 years old. Its a deck mount tub faucet. The faucet trim had no markings to help identify what brand it is. I even looked under the matching lav faucet and found no information. Its a wide spread faucet.

Sorry for the crappy Iphone pics. The seat broke where it threads into the faucet. The homeowner/carpenter was trying to play plumber for a day and this is what happened.

Seat = Rundle if 5/8 around the fattest part of the barrel x 2 5/32 long
Seat = Gerber if 11/16 around the fattest part of the barrel x 1 1/8 long

The only seats that look like yours in my catalog. Unfortunately no matching stem.

The stem looks similar to a Kohler Shoreham but that stem is 3" in total length. The bonnet nut is a Kohler design.

Pretty sure its a knock off brand faucet. I would think Kohler would have a logo or part number on either the trim or rough valve. They have a Delta diverter and handheld with it but the polished brass color looks like its a lot different between the handheld/diverter and the actual faucet. This leads me to believe they cheaped out on the faucet and added the hand held as an after thought.

If they have a delta diverter look into B&K by Mueller, they utilized Delta parts.

It looks like an old Sayco tub stem. If I remember correctly there are 2 number 8 orings
