I picked up a Spout for a delta widespread faucet for a very low price and thought I might try to use it to replace the spout on my older faucet and still use the valves and handles from the old faucet.

Delta is now using a quick connect hose system between the valves and spout and I was wondering if a suitable adaptor exists (I created a crude version of what I'm looking for using Photoshop below).

I suppose I can just cut the hoses and attach them with a brass coupler with hose clamps but I'd rather use an adaptor if one exists.

Now, why would Delta, which is where something like that would have to come from, make that adapter. Either they send the proper spout as a replacement, or they replace the entire faucet. Therefore, they do not have "cobble" things together to make them work.

HJ, Correct Delta has no need to make that part. I'm just trying to find something I can use to make use of a spout that I got at a steep discount because Delta discontinued the finish. I thought I could use it to replace the spout on an older delta faucet I have. Not because the old spout is damaged, but just to try a different style spout.

Look what I found by accident when doing a search for Delta widespread faucets (and it was made by Delta but it's discontinued).
"Delta Faucet RP41568 Tee Adapter Assembly for Widespread Lavatory and Kitchen".

With this adaptor, I'm able to use the older style Delta hoses that attach to the valve bodies instead of the cobbling I actually did (picture coming soon).

Not quite. You might still have to "cobble" because that tee has a "beveledcompression" joint connection NOT a pipe thread, and since your hose has 1/4" MIP thread, you still need some "cobble" to join it to the female "noncompatible" thread, unless the other end of the hose IS also a compression connection, in which case you could use a compression by compression flexible connector.

I understand a Delta Classic End Valve Assembly RP73641 is the original without quick connects.
The price is low. Check it out by searching Delta or the internet.
