    Hi all,
    Yesterday the home health aide broke the handle, and front part of the cartridge, off of the shower control in my sister-in-law's apartment. She has MS and lives in our home with 24/7 care.

    The bathroom was done back in the late 80's, or if I can find that blueprint the previous owner left us, I'll be more specific. In any case..........

    It's American Standard and it certainly appears to be this unit:

    I noticed that this link does not work, but it is the R-120 valve/cartridge that I've tried to link to.

    I'm going to shut off the main, take what's left out and head over to Blackman Plumbing, but does anyone know if they've changed this stuff much over the years? Do I stand a chance of not having to do any real plumbing today?

    Thanks for any info.

    Howard

    More cartridge detail, if it helps.........

    #023529-0070A is the designation I see on the PDF breakdown sheet.

    It certainly looks like what I took out, but............Murphy lurks, always.

    That was easy...........

    Cartridge is still the same old thing, albeit with a hi-temp limit adjustment ring.

    Simple.

    This American Standard cartridge has no indexing line/groove unfortunately, so you have to feel around for the screw holes.
