Be VERY careful and be absolutely sure that you have Gerber plumbing. These all in one kits look very similar and the threading on the stems will work with other brands plumbing (Price Pfister). But even the correct brand may not be an exact match. Bring in your diverter stem and at least one of the seats to make sure they are sized correctly as these items appear to be the real differences. Found different Geber diverters in "the book" and found that the seats were shaped a little different from my originals (no impact on stem operation) and the diverter in this kit was off by 1 mm short - just enough to keep the diverter from fully closing. Had to go to a local plumbing supply house to get the exact Gerber part. Not faulting HD or DANCO as it is very difficult to match what was put in a house over 30 years ago.
Kit is nice and comes with the little things like the plastic bushings and a cowbell/tub socket to help remove the stems. Wish they included the seat wrench to make this a true all in one kit.
Worked well for old Gerber 3 handle tub. The only problem is that the final finish plats have a single screw to tighten in place. This causes the plate to twist slightly so plate does not always sit flush against the tile. Other than that it all worked well.
