Which of the two gaskets do I use to install the spout?
Leland faucet (978 SSST DST) The instructions say to put a gasket under the spout. The box contains two, a white foam one and a dark rubber one, sticky on one side. The white one fits the "groove" in the spout bottom where the instructions say to put one, but it's very hard to hold in place while mounting the spout. The dark one is just too big for the groove. Caught in a dilemma here. If one of these goes there, where does the other one go? Please help right away. We are without water.
Thank you for your question and I apologize for the confusion. The white gasket goes under the spout for your Delta Faucet model # 978-SSSD-DST. The black gasket will go on your valve.

Is the spout gasket supposed to fit into 'grove' of the base or is it slightly larger than the cavity?
In the base there is a cavity (channel) that is very narrow. I have what I believe is the spout gasket but it is wider than that channel. Is the gasket supposed to fit into the channel in the base?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet part # RP50788 is used on a variety of faucets so we are not sure which model you have purchased. The gasket in question should sit in between the sink and the faucet. There is a little groove in the faucet but the gasket does not need to fit into the groove.
