putting on a single faucett handle



Here's the problem--

The handle of our kitchen faucet came off. It is the kind where one control handles the hot-cold mix AND the on-off-or-flow-rate.

I would like to position it in the classic position, where straight is an equal mix of hot and cold, so that moving it toward either side would increase the hot or the cold, from neutral.

But, how do I know where that even, neutral mix is?

(It is kind of like trying to put your steering wheel on so that it is straight when the wheels are pointed straight forward--but, I can't look at the wheels with respect to the water mix.)

In addition, I have the problem of getting the handle firmly on. It came loose before, and it seems only to have a set screw, other than whatever degree the cavity in the handle fits over the control.

In the US some people call this a Delta faucet, because it was an early brand name, sort of like when Brits refer to floor vacuum cleaning as hoovering.

Has anyone here put on one of these?


I realize I can search engine this for a video. But, I was thinking of it as a practical logic problem, perhaps worth some conversation. How would you approach it?

If I buy a new one, I would still have to assemble it so as to put the handle on the water control spindle. So, I would face the identical problem.
