I could not wait for the moen part to arrive, I took matters into my own hands.My friend big Mike brought us a faucet he located over in Mississippi. (don't ask me where he got it I do not know,hurricane katrina salvage?) I ripped out the sink from the kitchen counter and carried it outside. It is a double stainless sink and there was a hole in the right hand elbo as well as the trap. Circa 1970s drain system. I took the old parts down to ace hardware and a nice guy down there took the time to open some plastic pieces and put together a plastic drain system damn near close to my old nastyness. Yeah the faucet was funky AND the drain was gone. Can you imagine the funk under my kitchen sink? I got the old faucet off the sink and scrubbed it down with greased lightning. Installed the new faucet(new to me) This beauty had the old style handles for hot and cold and a big old goose neck spout . Looks cool too. I installed the faucet, bought a new sprayer assembly(the old one was gone and would not fit the dayum new faucet). I constructed the new drain system (all this on my appliance lift out in the shop. I installed that bad boy in the cabinet, had to use some new hoses to connect hot and cold). I gotta tell yall that sink is sweet. (I gotta say about a hundred or more hail marys). My wife is happier than a, well lets just leave it at that. LOL I got her ass off my back  :2funny: O0 :tickedoff: :tickedoff: :banana: :cheers: :banana:
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

This ole landlord has a one-word answer: Delta.
Parts are available and tenents can't fudge 'em up.  They make fancy lookin' stuff the ladies go for.
Don't force it. Get the BIG hammer.
