Crane Valve Bodies

Crane temple body

Crane “Temple Dial-eze” Metal Spout Valve Body
After years of robbing these valves off of perfectly good sinks, we found a manufacturer who was willing to go the extra mile and mill new bodies using an original valve as a pattern.  While these are not cast brass like the original Crane lavatory bodies, they are milled from solid brass stock.  These will fit onto postwar Crane widespread lavatory sinks using the metal spout.  They include the Criterion, Diana, Norwich, Elayne, and Westland.  Crane originally called this the “Temple” valve, these are an dimensionally exact copy of the original.  We have several ways of buying these valves, one can buy them with or without handles, and there are 3 different handle options.

These three pictures were taken from a 1952 Crane Catalog.  The term “Temple trim” is the original Crane nomenclature.

New and Improved Quarterturn Ceramic Disk Dial-ese Cartridge

The above stem accepts only the 65-7963/65-7980 replacement handles available here

Crane Pre-war Shower and Concealed deck Valve stem. 5-5/16” overall length. 3/8” diameter.  Fits all Criteron & Rival concealed bath valves made before WW2, and Telsa, Agilis, and Rival Wall sinks.  If the escutcheon is retained by a chrome knurled nut, this is your stem

23-X13 9/16” x 22 Valve seat for above 5.00
23-1032L Bibb Screw f/ original Crane stem 1.50 ea.

Crane pre-war Lavatory Stem
5-3/4” overall length, 1/2” diameter.  Fits Corwith, Elegia, Ovation, Nova, and pre-war Diana sinks made after the late 1920’s. Same stem used for hot & cold. If your escutcheon screws on to the valve, and there isn’t a nut holding the escutcheon down, this is the stem for you
Note; For several years in the late ‘20’s and early ‘30’s, Crane used a square broach on the end of the stem.  You have to remove the stem and compare it to both this stem and the 86-511HC stem below.  Both appear identical when installed in valve body.

Crane Early Widespread Lavy Stem
5 3/4” overall, 1/2” diameter stem, always square broach.  This stem is used in early Crane pedestal sinks up to about 1925.  Crane actually used the same valve body casting for both this stem and the 86-101HC stem, they just re-tooled the interior threads.  Both have the screw-on escutcheons.  So, if you have a Crane widespread lavatory, and it has a square top on the stem, you’ll need to pull the stem out and compare it against this picture and the one immediately above.  If it does not match this picture, you’ll need the 86-121HC available just above.
Note; a left-handed version does exist, but is no longer made.  Your only solution would be to replace the valve body with an later version original valve body. Call for Details.

9/16” x 22 Valve seat for above 5.00

Crane pre-war Lavatory Stem
4-1/2” overall, 3/8” diameter.  Used in most slant back and shelf back wall hung lavatories, including some early Drexel and Corwith-Compeer models. Also, occasionally used in kitchen sink applications.  Same stem used for both hot and cold. Note; overall length can vary by application.  If your stem looks like this one, but is shorter, this one will still usually work, it simply moves the handles out a bit more.

Crane Pre-war Slant-back Kitchen/Lavatory Stem
4”overall, stem 3/8”  Used in many Sunnyday, Kitchen Queen, and Homemaker faucets set at the “odd, 45 degree angled deck on 11” centers” and the occasional Drexel or Corwith-Compeer lavatory sinks.  If the metal escutcheons unscrew off the valve and aren’t retained by escutcheon nuts, this is most likely your stem.
Please note; some early Crane kitchen faucets made before 1928 had a slightly smaller diameter thread on the outside of the stem.  This stem can be re-milled to work, but we’ll need your valve body here to match the threads.

23-1032L Bibb Screw f/ original Crane stem 1.50 ea.

Crane Pre-War in-wall Shower Stem
6 3/4” overall, 1/2” diameter.  Used in most Tub and Shower applications where the escutcheon screws onto the valve body.  Early versions did have the square broach and these stems can be modified to work.  May have either ceramic cross, 5 ball metal, or metal cross handles.
Note; there are other lengths that look very similar, some are available on a special order basis.

Note, these 6” centerset faucets used a couple of different seats, depending on when it was made.  We’ve discovered that a #2 pencil fits almost perfectly in an X-13 seat, but spins in a X-12 seat.  This is the easy way to tell one from the other.

Crane Lavatory Stem
Hard to find stem fits Pre-war 6” centerset faucets used on Norwich, Clermont, and other sinks. 3/8” diameter stem, barrel diameter just over 13/16”, 2-1/4” overall length.

More common Lavatory stem, fits Oxford, and many other 4” centerset faucets.  Slightly smaller than the above 86-071 stem, measures 2 1/8” overall, 5/16” stem, and just over 5/8” barrel.
