How to repair a Sayco tub and shower body step P

On the faucet stem removal tool, there is a smaller side, this side fits over the faucet steam packing nut, you can use this to tighten the packing nut, but you will need to use a pair of pliers to fine tune it, note in the picture, I am using a pair of pliers on the packing nut, with the handle on the stem, what I am doing is, I am making sure the packing nut is tight enough, so that no water comes out between the nut and the stem, and that the handle turns on and off easy, if you leave it too loose, it will leak, if you make it to tight, the handle will be too hard to turn.Next Page
