    There should be a "limiting" ring that fits over the cartridge to control how far the stem can rotate towards the hot side. The cartridge itself is NOT adjustable.

    Thank you. I now have it adjusted, but I lost one of the gasket rings in the wall and now it leaks. It is the seal on the very back side of the cartridge and is shaped like a bubble "T". Do you know if I can buy just this ring or do I need to replace the whole cartridge? If I can buy the ring, where?

    I have never seen those rings sold separately. There are literally dozens in not hundreds of different configurations. Who would want to stock those???
