    rectangular trim piece says flowmatic. handle has a crown on it like a price pfister logo i found from the 1960's. i looked at a price pfister replacement (#900-0220) that is almost identical to the original but it has different hole patterns to it for both the screws and the water flow. i attached a photo of the base in the wall showing the hole patterns i need. any help would be sincerely appreciated.

    As far as I know, there is only one Flowmatic tub/shower valve, but I will check mine later to see if it is what you need.

    thanks for your reply.
    i saw that one on your website. i am guessing its a universal rough-in because it has 8 screw holes and looks like it will accept the cartridge you show elsewhere, pp#900-0220 and my original 6 hole cartridge. i tried pp#900-0220 on mine and it worked. only 4 screws to secure it but with the cork gasket there are no leaks. will have to get a handle and modify the trim later. it is my only shower and i am getting a little ripe. attached is a picture.
