Wolverine Brass - discontinued stem help


Hi Folks, I've a 50+ year old Wolverine Brass wall mount faucet and the stem / handle screw has broken off. I'm seeking a replacement for the stem (getting the screw out has proven impossible). A call to Wolverine did not get me the appropriate part. Anybody know a source that might have the equivalent somewhere? It is likely a 50045 thru 50047 series 8" Wall Mount Faucet with the part being 590-2092C (hot stem & housing array). My wife tells me to just replace the entire faucet because it is old but thats not nearly as much fun and besides she doesn't want me to replace her when she starts to fall apart... Thanks in advance, -Robert

the c at the end of the part number denotes cold. Start calling plumbing supply houses some of them specialize in hard to get items. Be prepared to pay. My next idea drill and retap the stem. Last resort get one of those crappy universal handle kits and put it on with allen screws

Thanks - have started with my local favorites - if anybody knows of any national shops with such supplies I'd appreciate the link / reference.
