Kitchen Sink Spray Diverter?


Having a problem with my kitchen sink faucet. Can't find a brand name anywhere. Central gooseneck with hot and cold levers to left and right and a spray hose. Spray hose work fine but suddenly lost pressure through central faucet, hot and cold to the goose neck.
Checked aerator; no constriction there or further up the "pipe".
Removed as much of the innards as I could. Nothing appears broken.

Wondering what would happen if I removed the diverter? Water to the main pipe but not the spray?

Looks like maybe the rubber gasket at the lower end of diverter is sticking in the "up" position. Should it drop down freely? If that were the problem, maybe removing the diverter, or trimming the gasket slightly, might help?
Been to Lowes and H.Depot. Nothing close. It's an old faucet. Planning to redo the kitchen in the next year, but hoping for a cheap fix on this faucet until then.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

REALLY appreciate your hanging with me on this.
Got your request to access my shutterfly, but haven't been able to figure out to handle it on this end, yet!
No at home wifi, and the holidays upon us, so enjoy however it is you celebrate and I'll try again after Christmas!
Thanks,

Since you're redoing the kitchen later, why not buy a $30 faucet and be done with it.

Why not buy the faucet you will use in the new kitchen and reuse it? And save the $30.

This may do it for the pics. Otherwise, I'll likely go with the new faucet option. Makes sense, I just hate not being able to figure it out! ;-)
