Not sure of the brand but this valve stem cup is worn out. 8" spread with 11" gooseneck. Is this stem available still? I can limp it along with new bibb washer but this is on its last days.

That's what can happen when you use a stillson wrench, vise grips or channel lock plies to remove a fitting that requires an adjustable crescent that won't crush the fitting. Bummer.

The pity is that it was probably just a bad $.05 washer.

Never use compression wrenches on a brass or copper fitting.
