    faucet question
    Anyone have any idea what kind of kohler faucet this is? It has the letters OL on it if that helps. Both the hot and cold water valves have a slow leak. I do know it is OLD.

    Found these at Lowes. (And Home Depot) Yours look older than I do, so good luck finding the details.

    Hi John

    Like you said, its an old Kohler...a kitchen faucet with 8-10" center spread. If I remember correctly, the OL isn't important...refers to a national standard or something like that.

    Are you trying to disassemble the unit? If so, that should be straight forward although you may need help using a handle puller to get the handles off. Otherwise, I believe this is old enough that you will find good, old-fashioned rubber washers and brass seats in there so it is a re-buildable faucet.

    If you have major questions on it you can call Kohler directly at 800 456-4537

    Otherwise, anything I can help with?

    Thanks, Mass. I got the handles off without much trouble. The cutoff under the sink is really strange. It looks more like the little cutoffs you see put on lines for an icemaker. There's one for the cold and one for the hot. Under the handles there is a fitting that looks like it's meant to unscrew out. It's a two sided fitting for a wrench to fit on. I'm assuming it's not a left hand thread on it. Sound about right?

    Tal, the faucet handles are exactly right.

    I'd have to see a picture to be sure, but left hand threads are pretty rare.

    If looking to shut water off to the faucet, just shut the main water supply off while working on the faucet.
