Bathroom shower valve repair

I tried to replace the bathroom shower valve with a kit from valley by danco pn 80978.
the new kit is a little different from the original installation.
a new handle is required $15.
two pieces in the new kit have slightly wider locating tangs so it was necessary to use 2 parts from my original installation.
the new seals and spring seat kit works well.
no leaks so far.
the old valve was leaking a lot from the shower head.

Gotta love plumbing when all of the pipe and valve sizes change. Most plumbing jobs end up to be "3-trips to the hardware store" for me.

I'm glad your experience was only "mix and match' and not hours of frustration and travel to and fro.

ha!
it took me 2 visits to home despot, Lowes and Grovers plumbing over 3 days. Grovers was closed on labor day.
on the 2nd visit to Grovers, this time with the old valve cartridge in hand, I found an old timer who knew what I needed and wonder of wonders, they had it in stock.
I had nightmares thinking about taking the wall apart to install a delta valve from h.d. and using sharkbite pex fittings.

This post has brought back some fun memories. About 10 years ago some of my friends and I were camping and a complete stranger came up to us and asked if any of us knew anything about plumbing. Seems he had a leaky shower control. My friend said "well heck, we can fix a shower control, lets take a look." So into this fella's RV we go and my friend proceeds to take the control apart. No one must have turned off the pump because when he got enough parts loosened up on the control, water and lots of little parts flew out and my friend and the stranger got a good rinsing until he could get the pump turned off. My friend tried to put it all back together but ended up with some "extra" parts that he couldn't figure out where they belonged. That stranger sure was a good sport about it, he said "don't worry about it, I'll take it do a dealer tomorrow and get it fixed, and here's a case of beer for your time!" I'll never forget how funny it was and what a great guy that stranger was!
