Answer: 
What helped me the most was finding out that the spring, small end, is inserted first, into chamber then black cup like part covers spring, and next comes stem.

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. The seat (rubber piece) and the spring go into the faucet body before the cartridge. Make sure to remove the old seat and spring, and then insert the spring, wide end first, into the port where the water comes in. Next, fit the rubber seat over the narrow end of the spring, then install the cartridge. If you'd like a visual how-to guide, please see Read More

How do you install a Danco 3S-10H/C on the hot water side so it rotates forward

This question is from 3S-10H/C Hot and Cold Stem for Delta Faucets
Asked by
Mark
November 18, 2012
I installed it fine, but it only rotates clockwise (the cold water direction) I need it to rotate counter-clockwise.

Answer: 
Figured it out myself, after working with it. You have to make sure it's rotated correctly. The flat side of the stem faces out, and the stop needs to be set based on the way the matching stop is installed inside the handle.

Answer: 
Hi Mark,
This cartridge is a universal hot/cold stem and only rotates in one direction. The rotation of this cartridge cannot be changed. If you have lever handles, the hot handle typically will not rotate as it did before. The solution is to replace the lever handles with canopy style handles, Danco stock #88695.
Thanks,
Danco

I included the following in my review:
For those of you new to faucet repair, here's the process:
Identifying what part I needed was pretty easy after I removed the knob. To do this, just ease a screwdriver into the gap on the knob cap and gently pry upwards. Then unscrew the screw and pull the knob off. If you only go this far, you don't even have to turn the water off.

If you're lucky you might have a water shutoff installed at the tub. I wasn't so fortunate and had to turn the whole house off to replace the stem. If you don't want to turn the water off to the whole house while you're at the store, take a picture of the top of your valve stem and then go to the faucet repair aisle in Home Depot. Make sure to note the brand! Otherwise get a wrench, take the nut off, and take the stem to the store to match. The only part that looked remotely like mine was this one.
I bought two, just in case both stems were leaking. When I got back I shut the water off to the house and took the nuts off of the valves with an adjustable wrench. Then I pulled the old stems out and used precision pliers to grab the old gasket and spring from inside the fixture. Installation is just the reverse process. I had a little trouble getting the gasket to seat, and I ended up lining it up and then seating it by pressing the stem in on top of it. I took the stem back out and sure enough, it had seated properly. Then just put the stem back in and screw it down with the retaining nut. Screw the knob back on and push in the cap, then turn on the water to make sure the valve has a good seal.
Easy as pie! The only tools you'll need are a screwdriver, an adjustable wrench, and some precision pliers. Fifteen minutes later, no more leaky faucet. Read Less

Answer: 
Hi Bamaboy72,
Thank you for your inquiry. The 3 indicates the length (approximately 1-7/8”), the S indicates what type of handle broach fits, the 9 is just a serial number to tell it apart from other 3S- stems, and the H/C indicates that the stem fits both the hot and cold side.
Thanks,
Danco Support

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Works great... until you run hot water Your grandma probably had Delta faucet in her house (God rest her soul), this design has been around for years. Instead of Home Depot carrying "Delta" brand replacement parts, we get this "Danco" stuff instead. The problem is the plastic material Danco choose to use, it's thermally unstable. So, what do I mean by that? Lots of (not all) plastic materials physically change and grow when temperatures get warmer and shrink when they get colder. With these replacement parts, once you run hot water through the "hot" side of faucet for a while, that plastic grows and expands. When you 're ready shut it off, it still turns, but it now turns with increased resistance due to lack of internal clearance. Once everything cools back down, it turns normally again. Do yourself favor (and your grandma, if she's still alive) and replace those Delta stems with "Delta" brand stems, not "Danco" brand stems. By the way..., if your grandma is still kicking, pick up the phone and give her call. February 4, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well, tricky to install In general, I'm pretty pleased with this - it installed fairly easily, and cleared up the leak well. It's sort of tricky to install it so that the faucet turns forward instead of backward - the original Delta stem had a movable stop that you put on the appropriate side after installing it. With this one, you have to make sure it's rotated correctly first, and the proper rotation isn't obvious - you have to check the inside of the handle. November 19, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fix your leaky bathtub faucet! Our bathtub faucet had a slow drip, and this replacement part fixed the problem.
