A: It will fit if you have a delta or glacier bay value set. The easiest way to tell is to shut the water off to your shower or tub and pull the stem (tons of video on youtube) and bring it to a HD or HW store and have them match it. These are just like cars you need manufacture specific parts that match the models to properly repair them.
A: Thank you for contacting Danco. This stem is for kitchen or lavatory sink faucets and not intended for bathtub faucets.
A: The flat side on the stem has to align with the flat side in the handle and be oriented in the correct position.
A: I put it in like I found the original, raised flat side on the inside closest to the drain handle.
A: Yes it does. The stem is facing out. The larger cylinder portion with the holes goes back towards the water line.
A: The valve on my faucet was off center and I had to figure out which direction the handle turned to align the stem holes with the hole on the valve. The alignment tabs are 180 degrees, so it you could miss-align it, but maybe that is why there are two holes on the stem???
A: Thank you for your choosing Danco products and for your inquiry. Our Danco 10405 , Valve stem and Glacier Bay 3S-9H/C, has been used in many different faucet types and models over the years. So it would be difficult inform you which side to place the "flat side". On the top of the stem you will notice a plastic stop next to the shaft of the stem. The direction of the stop can be rotated 180 degrees, which will change the handle rotation. Remove the handle and retaining nut, hold the shaft of the stem and rotate the top(White) portion of the stem 180 Degrees, and then reinstall.
A: Thank you for contacting Danco. The 9 stands for the order in which the stem was created so for example 3s-8h/c was in production before the 3s-9h/c, as the 3s-9h/c was produced before the 3s-10h/c. 3 is the length of the stem times 2 and the S is the broach type. The H/C stands for both a hot & cold stem.
A: Appears to be the part number. There are several different styles with different numbers. Home depot gives the specs on the stems. I had to pull the old stem and match it to the new part.
A: Thank you for choosing Danco products. The spring goes into the inlet port in the bottom or back of the faucet wide end first, then the rubber seat fits over the spring. The cartridge goes in on top of that, then replace the retainer nut and handle.
A: It's been a year and a half. I'm sure you've looked on YouTube by now. Everything's there. Cheers.
