To get to the washers on the ball stem you have to:
-remove the hose adaptor(D),
-remove the front white plastic seat(C)
-then align the ball valve(B) in the proper orientation with the keyway to pop the ball valve out
-then you can remove the ball stem to replace washers.
Yes, that means that there are 3 potential leak points..not two.

handyman do you mean 3 potential leaks points overall or 3 potential leak points for the original poster?

The original poster said his leak is at #3. look at his first post and look at #3 on his photo. If his leak is at #3, then his leak is coming out the male hose adaptor. Which means the white plastic seat is bad or not seated properly.

If the stem valve o-rings were bad, his leak would be coming out from under the handle.

If the o-ring at the top of the 1/2 MIP threaded stem was bad, the leak would be directly below this o-ring shown at point #5 in the first photo.

I was just responding to one of your original posts where you identified only 2 potential leak points and I included another one.
"Only leak sources would be the white plastic seat under the hose [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]adaptor[/COLOR][/COLOR] or the O-ring on the 1/2" MIP threaded stem."

Yeah you're right.

From my post #12 I only said the o-ring at the base of the threaded stem or the white plastic seat.

That was before I dissambled the ball stem and found the o-rings on it

Not to pat myself on my back, but I knew there would be a seal there because the stem is a moving/rotating part.
