Bradley-Cole & Kohler valve stem single handle compatibility

Greetings, I have the subject valve/stem in my shower and want to replace the fixture/shower head. Is this valve and stem compatible with any manufacturer or just certain makers? I'm looking at replacing it with Delta fixtures. Thanks for your reply in advance.

What are you asking??? If you change the shower diverter in the wall can you still use the same shower head???

Explain a little clearer please...

And as a repair standpoint moen is the better brand IMO... 1 cartridge to change... Not multiple pieces like other brands with balance spools....

Sorry, I'm wanting to replace the flow control handle fixture leaving the present valve and stem. I'm hoping not to replace valve body and stem. It's a 25 yo Moen fixture, will the new Moen hardware fit the valve stem without replacement?

No... You will not find another manufacturer with trim that will fit your valve body...

You may find replacement trim online...

Take a pic of the valve... I can find something but need to see it... So post a pic...

Otherwise you will need to go in the wall and replace the body...

Thx... I have no problem staying with Moen, so if new Moen trim/handle will work with the 25 yo valve/stem that's what I'll stick with.

This is a Kohler, Bradley and one other brand that jumped on board. The only valve trim that will work is the one you see. I suggest a Moen posi-temp valve ( inside the wall) where you can buy many styles and colors of trim to fit the same valve after the tile is installed. 30 years exp!
