Sink stopper

The original pivot rod rusted inside the drain pipe and this was a generic part.

Even manually pivoting the rod up as much as possible the stopper will not lift.

Are there different internal rod lengths or being a Delta faucet requires a Delta part?

I have this same set up in other bathrooms so can take apart if needed!

Should be standard... unless your tailpiece is something one off. The tailpiece w/ popup is what would be off if the length seems wrong. Unless your generic part was too short? You never know with those Chinese parts.

I would say change both the tailpiece and popup to be sure.

I had a similar pivot rod problem with a Moen vanity faucet about a year ago. Moen sent me the proper replacement free of charge although it wasn't under warranty. I actually prefer a good Delta faucet, but it's hard to beat good customer service that Moen gives.
