The oldest ones had a spool just like the Moentrol and it was under the trim plate. It has a large nut with a screwdrive slot in it. Sometimes you can remove it and tap it on the floor. If you can shake it and feel/hear the piston inside moving back and forth reinstall it. Otherwise replace it.

: : We get almost zero hot water out of the shower/tub. There is plenty of HW at the sink. What is the diagnostic procedure? Adjustments? The valve is probably 20 years old.

: You must have one of the first Delta pressure balanced faucets made, (20 years old), I didn't realize thay have been around that long.
: There should be an adjustment under the handle, the same way they're adjusted today.
: Good Luck. e-plumber
