It worked perfectly, and better yet, you carry parts for such an old design. The local George Morlan couldn't help me and were completely lost as far as finding the parts I needed. But Home Depot came through for me. Thank you!
The kit is fine but the old seats in the shower body couldn't be removed. I tried everything, even putting in a special tool that you "screw" into the seat and then ratchet out. That didn't work either, scraping out even more of the bronze in the old seat, and leaving me in a position where after all the attempts to remove the seat, the body leaked unbelievably, forcing me to rip out the entire shower body at 9pm at night.
My advice? Plan to replace the entire shower body rather than use this kit. My new Moen shower body doesn't leak at all, and does a much better job controlling the temperature. It's now a much hotter shower too. And when I need to replace the valve, it's as easy as pie.
Cons: won't really work if the old seat can't be removed
