This cartridge has a built in nut attached to it and does not seperate. Dont know the brand, and they dont sell it at the parts store. I went to Home Depot and Alright plumbing. 156363157536748212864.jpg 15636316369791623655981.jpg

The middle section looks ceramic. The nut and cartridge is a single piece. They do not seperate. I need to find where to buy a new one.

I also asked the guy at Alright plumbing and he said that i couldnt use a different combination. Not sure how true that is, as im fairly new to the plumbing business. Guy at home depot referred me over there cause they didnt have that style at home depot

I'm only a second year apprentice but I was just trying to find something similar for a customer last week and it was a very old delta. Was not in any of the box stores. We luckily have a local specialty store with an old guy that probably knows every faucet cartridge and stem ever made

you could also put the handle back on and use an adjustable wrench on the chrome nut to see if it does loosen up

You right. They do sell it. The associate who works in that isle there must have never seen one. I searched the area also but didnt see one but sure enough its there at my nearest Home Depot. They got 12 of them as it shows online.
