building i work at has these American Standard wide spread faucets in all 27 floors :(
part # 617854-00070A ( spline handle adaptor )
our inventory person wrote in the parts search " cut in half part no longer available " as there is zero left in our stock LOL
the lady who orders the stuff has no trade knowledge of material...
anyone familiar with these wide spreads or know of an alternative spline that works? i would doubt they just stopped making a peice of plastic thats needed for the handle to fit and just keep sending us the same handles. there must be a "new part" with a different model number.
sent her an email saying to call them tomorow but i highly doubt she will ask the right questions. this place is ran ass backwards

In June i ordered a cartridge from AS, I didn’t get it til the beginning of Oct..
He just needs to identify the part he needs. Then he can order from whomever he wishes.

Anything new AS is junk! Their old 3.5 flush toilets are highly sought after by one of my customers though. I second calling AS, get the part # and calling around.
I have a 3.5gal AmStd in Robin's egg blue, it will be replaced by the same model in white(but taller) if I ever get around to it. It is my favorite mid-century toilet.

My Favorite 1.6gpf is the Mansfield Alto.

Pshhh Project Source (Previously AquaSource) ADA, Elong. $110....flushes just as good as Cadet, also has 3" flush valve. The only difference is going to be the glaze(idgaf) and the name stamped on the china. Not all cheap things are good, but this toilet is one of the good ones👍imho

I must have missed this in school, but there is a clause in the IPC that makes it against code to reuse any old fixture unless it has been reconditioned and tested. "Reconditioned" and "tested" are not defined.
