I was wondering, could you identify this Delta shower valve? I am at my grandparents house. There are two of these valves paired with the Delta pull-down diverter spouts and Delta arms, one with a 5.5 inch Moen Engage with Magnetix showerhead and the other with a Moen Adler showerhead.

The kit I'm using if I'm replacing the handle and wall plate.

You need to be careful when removing the threaded bonnet though.

Even pressure around the nut part, some use a mission coupling on pipe for an even grip.
I've used heat to expand it a bit.
Some will make a saw cut, I haven't tried that yet.

Or at least these parts.

If you tap on the chrome nut lightly with a hammer (or =) many, many times you will eventually be able to unscrew it by hand and avoid twisting the copper tubes. I always grease the threads before putting the nut back on.

This is awkward, but...
