Our original Delta shower faucet installed in 2001is model N1424-74. We are doing some upgrades and need to know if Delta conversion kit RP5487ORB is compatible
Thank you for your inquiry! The Delta Renovation Kit RP54870RB is designed for a 600 series ball valve unit. However, any of our trim kits that start with a T13 or a T14 will interchange for your older Classic N1424-74 model, without replacing the valve, in the wall.

To whom it may concern
How will I know if this is the right kit replacement for me? I don't see any model number on my old leaky shower valve, all it say is, delta and it's the Crystal ball one, any help will greatly appreciated, thank you
Thank you for your question, denz! The 600 series that this renovation kit is designed to replace, operates by moving the handle up to turn on the water and then left or right for hot and cold water. This is the only series that operates in this way. The 600 series also uses a ball valve rather than a shower cartridge.
Best regards, Edward

Alternate for the diverter plug, replacements for the housing/base and rough?
My 1970s faucet has the ball and the push button diverter. The Escutcheon Plate is in excellent shape, so I can reuse it. I think it's is comparable to the 600 series, so I plan to buy that kit. Questions:
1. Instead of getting the RP2865 push button diverter plug and then pick a tub spout that has a diverter included on it, can I just reuse the current push button diverter with my original Escutcheon Plate and the original tub spout?
2. Can I buy the part that house the 2 rubber valve seat in it? (the back of that housing there are 3 copper tubings connecting to the rough). Where can I buy it. Part number?
3. Can I still buy that rough? Part number?
Thank you for your inquiry! Yes, you can reuse your push button diverter, escutcheon plate and tub spout with the 600 Series RP54870 faucet trim.
The part that houses the seats and springs is the rough-in valve assembly and unfortunately we no longer make the 600 series rough-in valves.
