shower handle annoyance
I have completely replaced the guts of my tub handles and still have a drip. I have torn it all apart twice and have found no reason for the drip. New seats, washers, stems, handles.....still drips.

And it's a really old one right?
Time for a new one?

Let us know what brand and style--single or double handle---

Replace seats or re rim them.

Two and three handle Gerber Tub and Shower Faucet

I found this for you---the guts are not all that unusual----only cause of a drip would be the seat and the washer---see if the steps shown here match up with your method--
