Yes. The wrench is recessed to hold the nuts. You have to have patience sometimes to get them started.

Always try the simplest first...replace the O rings and rubber washers. Then worry about the tough stuff. Just my 2 cents worth!

Jason,

If you cannot replace the faucet seats, the part that remains inside the faucet after you remove the cartridge shown in the third photo, then a new 4-inch center faucet might be in order. The seats generally require a hex wrench to remove.

If you need to replace the faucet, look into basin wrenches. That should serve to remove the pesky thing.

Installing may be more challenging because you need to hold the hex surfaces on the "nuts" while getting them started. If you can't reach up there to at least get the new fasteners started, maybe a kid with smaller hand and arms could help to reach up and get them started - ?

Other than that, maybe you can get creative and tape the fitting nuts to the basin wrench with blue tape or something that will hold them enough to get the nuts started on the threads but release itself when you apply more force to tighten them down.

Another approach might be to connect different pigtails which are easier to connect to the faucet, then connect the pigtails to the existing piping lower down.

It looks like it will be a challenge; I hope you find something that works out for you.

Edit: Wow; I had a brain poof and only saw the first page of posts, (#1 through #14), so I was waaaay behind the curve when I posted my reply on this one...

I haven't used the RIDGID Faucet and Sink Installer Tool, but I was intrigued by it when I saw it on the Google search.

If Eddie says it works, well, that's good enough for me to recommended that Jason spend his money on one!

Awsome info! Thank you! Even if the o-rings work I think I'll pick up one of those tools! Every time I do a job around the house I tell my wife how much she saved by just letting me buy the tools....HEHE.
