Annoying small drip???

I have an early sixties tri-level with original Kohler fixtures in the bathrooms. I have been band-aiding things together but nearly every bathroom in the house has a very small drip. I haven replaced all of the stems but some. And when I pull one of the old ones I wire brush it off before reinstall. Any ideas? Should I just break down and replace all of the stems?

Annoying small drip???

Are you replacing the seats and washers in these valves?


Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.
