I put the old graphite nut part back in for now and will try string later. The washer include to keep the new graphite in place is too big and slides down the stem so the must be the wrong kit.Can you add graphite string and use several wraps behind the packing nut to make it tighter and that should stop the leak and tighten the final plastic nut. Let me know how this works, we used to use it back in the 60's and 70's
That is it. No matter what I did the kit would not fit. A plumber came out and said he can't even tell what brand it is. Recommends putting in a whole new spout/spigot 150.Is this the product you used; Prier 630-7755 Wall Hydrant Repair Kit
There are a number of parts, individually available, at your local hrdw. venders, which may fit. Unfortunately, unless you can isolate that line, you need to shut the supply off to the dwelling, prior to disassembly.
AHHH, a salesman with a product.That is it. No matter what I did the kit would not fit. A plumber came out and said he can't even tell what brand it is. Recommends putting in a whole new spout/spigot 150.
