I am trying to replace the faucet in my tub,
But the brass fitting it screws onto is larger than all of the standard size one's.
When I measure the plastic thread hole in the old one, it measures 1 1/4" (inches)
Thank you for your question, JJWeb! RP17453 connects by either sweating onto 1/2" C.W.T. (copper water tube) or threading onto 1/2" IPS (iron pipe size). If your previous tub spout was installed onto another manufacturers adapter, this will need to be removed before using this tub spout.
Best regards, Edward

How long of a 1/2" pipe stub is needed for the adapter?
The distance from the wall to the end of the 1/2" copper pipe on my bathtub is 1 1/4". Is this long enough to use with the brass adapter that comes with this Delta tub spout? If not, what is the recommended way to install the spout? I looked on-line for detailed installation instructions, but could not find any.
Hi AW, Thank you for your question. You will need at a minimum 1-1/2" and preferably 1-3/4" of copper to solder on the adapter. The only other option is if you can solder on a 1/2" copper male adapter keeping your overall length to 1-1/4" at the maximum, 1/2" at the minimum and then threading the tub spout adapter on.
