      I,m trying to replace an old dial-ese fixture on my kitchen sink. Its a double sided sink with dome shaped hot/cold, swivel spout and rubber hose sprayer. It was installed around 1949. I have not been able to find any replacement fixture that would fit this unique location and 45 degree angle of the fixture placement(I would also like to replace the broken plastic cover plate but realize this may be next to impossible). Thanx

      Don: I guess you arent old enough. That Crane faucet mounts on the backsplash of a proprietary sink and nothing will take its place. And since Crane cleaned out their old stock about 10 years ago, it is unlikely that Brian will find anything to replace it. There are at least three other proprietary systems that have the same problem. American Standards tower sinks, American Kitchens backsplash mount, and GE/Hotpoints dishwasher/sink combination.: Brian, : I couldnt understand your problem. : But let me say this… : All kitchen sink faucets that I have ever seen mount in two holes that are eight inches apart (and then another hole for the sprayer, if equiped). : If yours is not like that, repost your problem in different words and maybe someone can help. Or go to a very old hardware or plumbing store in your area and talk to the oldest guy there. : Good luck.
