not yet, thanks... I will check into Kohler direct

I just called the best place in our town which can match up about anything
and their head guy tells me they dis continued that spool type cartridge for the kohler a long while back
and just dont carry them any longer.... I was surprised

If I can get the parts, I would rather attempt the repair because these two shower units have a set of closet
drawers that I would have to cut through to install a new faucet...
..
Cut thru the front and use a decorative plate install a Moentrol and be a hero lololololo

Can I just do a quick shout out to M-ONE?

M-ONE is in SLC, which is in my service area. Those dudes are THE SCHIT.

Most of the guys who work there are old plumbers that are just too old to do the physical labor required in plumbing. Theyve been around the block and have done the trade 20-35 years. They're AWESOME. I swear to God they know everything.

If you need a cartridge and they don't have it, they'll find it ASAP and call you. Great service.

If you need a stem, and they don't have it, you can take the old one in and they'll machine it. Come back in two hours or so, and they got it all made perfectly.

They're great

The Kohler Neidecken t/s faucet was very well built and lasted for years. No it wasn't pressure balanced but for a 1 handle faucet it was great. Very easy to rebuild, but expensive, compared to most of the crap being sold today. When rebuilding these replace ALL the parts. A worn stem will not work right with a new yoke!
You will need the Kohler K-30090 repair kit, the K-30092 yoke assembly kit and the cover / stem part number varies because there are 3 different lengths of stems depending on the rough in. Once rebuilt you won't see that faucet for years!
