Is it like described in this thread?

The Balancing Spool can cause problems. Seems if you take it out, it should rattle when you shake it.
You should be able to soak it in like CLR to break it loose.

The real name is the "Moen 1423 Shower Balancing Spool for Moentrol" and it costs like 50 bucks.

This has been the cause of "no hot water" in the shower discussions but it could be stuck just right to significantly throttle the flow.

A search of this forum for MOEN will turn up something. If nothing else you can get a plan for getting a replacement if you are the original owner.
