Leaky Tub Faucet (Antique Reproduction)

I have a Elizabethan Classics Wall Mount Tub Faucet and shower riser with Porcelain Lever Handles - TW13 on a old claw bathtub. These are compression type faucets. I can remove the diverter valve to reveal a replaceable rubber washer. But I cannot see any way to remove the cold and hot water valves. Aren't they removable and don't they have replaceable rubber valve seats? This is a $245 faucet. I hate to buy another new one just to stop the persistent leaks. Any thoughts or suggestions? Many Thanks.

Sometimes check the faucet screws they come loose or if they are old you might want to replace the whole diverter, take them to lowes or home depot and have them guys in the plumbing department hook you up. trust me you are opening a can of worms with rubber valve seats just get new ones. Make sure before pulling you cut off water supply to them.

Elizabethan classics RP-SWAC valve to change from faucet to shower head is getting tighter & will only turn half the distance it used to.

Unless there are internal plastic components that might have become swollen or otherwise distorted the cause is likely to be a buildup of limescale.

Paying that price for your shower faucet, I would think the supply house would work with you on that. eBay shows cross handles so they are available.
The plumbing supply store should be able to order what you want.

On new Moen shower faucet, when I turn on faucet, water drips from shower also.

The faucet was installed upside down.
The shower riser pipe in the wall is to short( the distance between the faucet and shower head).
One of the biggest problems is if your shower faucet was installed with Pex pipe to the tub spout. Pex pipe will restrict the flow and force the water back up and out of the shower head.
The tub spout must be piped with at least 1/2 brass pipe nipples and fittings, or 5/8 OD. copper pipe and fittings.
Hope this helps, if you further questions please let us know.
