    In wall of my shower have a kolher Triton K-T7751-2-cp trim set using what i believe to be according to Kohler website a valve set of k-303-k.

    The installation is probably a least 20 years old. The stems are 1/4 design and have always been hard to turn but with no leaks.

    Can they be adjusted, greased, seals replaced etc?

    They are not serviceable. Replace the stem units.
