      Comments about Danco 6S-1H/C Moen Stem (A018326B):

      My Moen 2-handled faucet developed a slow leak so I decided to go ahead and replace both cores (stems) since I'd already replaced the o-rings a year or so ago.

      This is normally a relatively easy job...
      1) turn off the water supply to the faucet
      2) undo the water supply to the faucet (be sure to have a towel below the sink to catch excess water)
      3) remove the handles
      4) remove the brass retaining sleeves
      5) use pliers to gently pull up on the cores to remove them
      6) insert new cores
      7) reattach brass retaining rings
      8) reattach handles
      9) reattach water supply
      10) turn on water...viola - all done


      I got to step 10 and checked for leaks (an essential part of any project) and it was leaking like crazy under the sink. So much was coming down that I couldn't tell if it was coming from the faucet, the drain plug rod insert, or the seal around the drain at the base of the sink. WHAT THE **** was going on?!

      I had to undo the whole thing, take everything apart, and at first glance there was no clue to what was going on.

      I then too a closer look at the o-rings and the grooves in which they were seated, and ON BOTH NEW CORES (stems) there was excess plastic in the top groove still attached to the outer stem wall that was left over from the injection mold process. This small bit of plastic caused the o-ring to pucker and water to leak, and leak badly!

      When I saw this I really wanted to swear. Instead I pulled out my pocketknife, trimmed away the excess plastic, checked for any other extra plastic and reassembled the faucet. I'm now waiting to see if any long-term leaks develop.

      This incredibly irritating manufacturing quality control flaw turned a 5-10 min job into a 1-hour job. Thanks Ace, thanks a lot.

      I wonder whether I should bill ACE for my time.

      Terrible quality control.

        Comments about Danco 6S-1H/C Moen Stem (A018326B):

        The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the OEM screw has to be cut down by half, or you need to buy a shorter screw to attach the handle. All other fits as good as the original faucet stem. This is all plastic (what nowdays isn't) so only time will tell how long it will last.
