What is large nut assembly in tub unit?
You are probably looking at the stem.
Go to a hardware store and ask to look at an older stem. You will see what it looks like. You will get better service from Ace, Sentry, etc.
The easiest way to repair it is to get the kit with new stems and handles. It come with a wrench to fit the stems. You will need a seat wrench to remove the seats. Put pipe dope on the seat threads and get grease to grease up the stems.
If you can't get the wrench to fit into the hole in the tub wall, yoiu will have to make it bigger some how. Just don't go bigger than the size of the trim.
MAKE SURE THE FAUCET IS IN THE OPEN POSITION BEFORE REMOVING THE STEM. If you don't, you will destroy your valve in the wall and be in for a $400 to 800 repair bill and a hole in the wall.

Price Pfister hot water runs slow
Check the supply line and valve to see if any dirt or foreign.matter got into the line or valve when you changed out your faucet. if this is not the problem you may have a faulty faucet. You may be able to back flush the faucet with a garden hose by leaving the hot side open, but you will get wet. If you used Teflon tape on the supply line and it is a compression fitting, some of the tape could be blocking the water. for more info go to waterheaterflush.com
