Both the 6-Setting (T27997) and the 3-Setting trim (T27897) include the 2-Setting Diverter (RP71717). Does one trim align with the marks on the escutcheon plate better for that valve? Is there a threaded cap part number for the port i won't need?
Thank you for your inquiry, AlexB! The Delta Delta 6-Setting Trim T27997 and the 3-Setting Integrated Diverter trim T27897 come with different diverter cartridges. The T27997 would have the RP51919 Shared 6 Function cartridge and the RP71718 Non-Shared 3 Function cartridge assembly. The T27897 would have the RP51918 Shared 3 Function cartridge and the RP71717 Non-Shared 2 Function cartridge assembly. The knob would line up with the markings on the escutcheon plate, for the proper function unit installed. The provided plug/cap should be soldered to the right outlet port for a 3-setting diverter.

What do I do if I only have 2 shower components and 3 settings?
I am about to install this in a stand-alone shower. I have an overhead shower head and a set of 3 body jet sprayers.
1. can I set it up so my settings are: (a: shower only, b: body only, c: both)?
2. if not, can how do I install it such that my settings are (a: shower, b: body, c: n/a)?
Thank you for your inquiry! The Delta Traditional 17 Series Trim T27897-RB come with the 3-Setting Diverter (top handle). You would want to cap off the right side of the rough-in valve and plumb the body sprays to the left port of the valve.

What cartridges is included with the T27897-ss trim? I want the following shower functions: shower head only, handheld shower only, and both the shower head and handheld shower.
Thank you for your question. The T27897-SS has a Dual Function Pressure Balance Cartridge, RP46463, along with a 3 setting diverter cartridge assembly, RP51918. This will allow a shared setting for both units on at the same time and two individual settings.

Installation options not clear.
We want this valve to work to choose only one of these three: (1) bath faucet to the tub, (2) shower head, and (3) hand shower.
Isn't there a three-position diverter that gives us this functionality?
Must we go with the 6-function diverter to get this functionality? That gives us 3 mixed ("shared") positions we don't want. Will the RP71718 "3-function non-shared" diverter do this?
Where are the diverter reference diagrams that show diversion for ALL 4 cartridges? RP71717, RP51918, RP71718, and RP51919.
Thank you for your question. The RP71718 3-Function Non-Shared Diverter Cartridge will give you this functionality. We recommend to use it with the T27997 trim so that the markings on the plate will align with the handle in all three positions.
Regarding the diagram, the positions will match the non-shared settings of the 6-Setting diverter.

Will the 6 function diverter cartridge (RP51919) work with this Valve Trim (T27897)?
Thank you for your question. If you have 3 showering components, we would recommend using the T27997-SS trim which will include the RP51919 6-Setting Diverter Cartridge.
If you have already purchased and installed the T27897-SS trim, the RP51919 cartridge can be used in place of the included RP51918, but the 3 position indicators on the plate will not line up with the handle positions.
