 sink ball & rod assembly
Author: tonyscro (CA)

The part of the rod in front of the ball broke off from corrosion requiring a replacement assembly.Unfortunately the ball is smaller than that available at box stores or independent retailers specializing in plumbing supplies. Any suggestions on where I may find a souce that may sell one with the size I need?

you may need to determine the manufacturer of the faucet to get the proper part. these are not generic and even a slight difference in the size of the ball will result in a leak or ot just won't fit into the socket.
it might just be easier to change the whole assembly.

Yes, I would just replace the entire assembly. For about $10 you can have a brand new pop up assembly.

Unless the rod is brass construction (most aren't), it is usually the first part to wear out on a pop-up assembly.
