I don’t blame you one bit,me and you have our own businesses and can’t afford to be tied up on junk like this for days and days but if we were just working for a company it would be different,you would loose more money turning down jobs than you would make fooling with this ancient crappersWell, I walked away from this mess..... It turns out he actually is ordering some antique crane toilets
that match this design and he plans on installing them in place of the cracked bowls ....
In his own words.. this is gonna go smooth---
finding the correct spud and possibly a new 1 1/2 elbow ought to be fun
I wished him
luck cause he is gonna need it....
I think MARK is talking about a wall mounted tanks,
Just where "down south" are you talking about?I go out to a home down south that has sections build as far back as 1840
and it has another area built in 1863 and most of the plumbing from the early 20s...
he claims it was an underground rail road building with a tunnel to the next building about a
the guy wants to repair 3 of these tub faucets and I am not sure if this is even possible
they are Crane from about 1920 or earlier
also wants to upgrade he toilets to tank type which would mean reducing the water line in the wall
and coming out with 1/2 or 3/8th which looks like a fun time too......

You're yelling at the deaf. Most of these guys can't comprehend why a customer would want to use old plumbing fixtures. Many of them don't even carry seats/washers on the van.They want old. you can't put new old in in most cases.
I regularly use 80% of my material. My tools take up more space than my parts. None of my stuff gets rained on and I almost never call back for parts or make a supply house run. That right there is efficiency and more money in the company's pockets. Good for me when I get my bonus/raise/profit sharing.and that means we are the best of the best,we. Know what we need and don't have $15,000.00 in material driving up and down the road collecting dust
