    Hey! Trying to rebuild this valve if possible and can't seem to find anything like it thus far. Only thing I can see on the brass valve is a large "K" and that is all I can see. The plastic cover pieces and knob have some small part numbers but can't seem to find much with those either. It is a single stem valve that has two perpendicular concave spring seals on each side. The valve body is open on both ends and seals on both ends of the stem. Any help would be awesome!

    Thanks!

    Here is what the trim looks like and I can't find any type of brand name on it whatsoever, just basic part numbers on the trim I mentioned before. I thought the K maybe stood for the same as well, but haven't had any luck finding anything of theirs that seems to match. Even my local hardware store was baffled by the stem valve, but luckily there is specialized plumbing place somewhat close I'm going to call and see if they have any idea either.

    Try Kohler. Many of their parts are stamped with a K. Check the website for parts ID. Good luck.
