Diverter in bath tub spout leaking
Does the repair kit RP3614 include parts that can repair the diverter on the spout? The color of the whole set of fixture is no longer available from Delta. I want to keep the matching spout, and not replacing it, if I can. The spout was installed 34 years ago.
Thank you for your question. If your tub spout is leaking, the only way to repair it is to replace it. The tub spout does not break down into parts that can be replaced.

Leaving Off the Adjusting Ring on Older Models
All my faucets are from 1993 when home was built.
Single Handle Kitchen (probably Model 300) looks like RP61 cam is used for repair with RP70 ball.
For the single handle (Acrylic Knob) bathroom faucets and shower faucets it looks like cam is RP188.
All my older faucets have the white plastic adjusting ring on the chrome bonnet/cap.
Not clear in kit instructions... but I'm being told that with newer cams such as RP61 and RP188 that the white plastic adjusting ring should be discarded, even if using the ORIGINAL serrated (no wrench flats) bonnet. If using RP50 replacement bonnet, also discard adjusting ring. Newer RP1050 replacement bonnet doesn't have/need the adjusting ring..
So is it true that adjusting ring should be discarded?
Hi wraujr, Thank you for your question. The older versions of the RP61 and the RP188 cam and packing came as 2 separate pieces, these units used the adjusting ring if necessary to tighten down the cam. The new RP61 and RP188 cam assemblies are a 1 piece design and are thicker. If you replace the older models with the new you will want to remove the adjusting ring in the cap/bonnet.

Re - Inserting Ball ( RP212) into faucet body
When re-inserting the Ball into the Faucet body ( My faucet is Model 502 Single Handle Delta faucet using RP188 Cam Assembly ) ----Is there a PIN inside the Value Body that you need to match up with a Slot in the RP212 Ball?
Thank you for your question. If you have an RP212 ball, there will not be a pin in the valve. Only lever handle models (which use the RP70 ball) have a pin.

Was I sent the correct part from Delta?
I received part numbers RP70 and RP3614A to fix my leaky faucet (slow drip from spout). My instruction sheet from the purchase of my faucet, model 174SSWF, indicates the part numbers are RP70 and KP4993 for this fix. Just wanted to be sure I have the right part before beginning the repairs.
Thank you for your inquiry! The Delta Repair Kit RP3614 comes with the Seat and Springs RP4993, needed to repair your leaking faucet Delta Waterfall 174-SSWF faucet.

Will this work with my Delta 400 kitchen sigle-handle faucet?
Hi Linda, Thank you for your question!
The RP3614 repair kit is correct for the 400-WF single handle kitchen faucet. However, it will not work for the 400-DST.

Is the ANTI -SEIZE RING still required to place on top of the newer CAM Assembly ( RP 188 ) before you put back the CAP/ Bonnet ?
If so what is the PART Number of this Anti- Seize Ring and can it be purchased?
Thank you for your question. If your faucet came with an anti-seize ring, it should be installed with the new cam assembly. If it did not, the ring is not required. The anti-seize ring comes with the cap assembly, RP1050. Please note that this is not the same as the adjusting ring, which should not be used with the new cam.
