Hot water slow flow until I turn shower mixer

My house has all original American Standard baths from 1957. One day I may modernize them but they work and the project list is long. The hot water faucet on the bath was leaking so I replaced the valve. Now, it runs very slowly until I either turn the cold water on and off, or turn the shower mixer back and forth. There must be an obvious reason for this? Any insight much appreciated! https://imgur.com/gallery/gWqAlc8 submitted by /u/thebemusedmuse [link] [comments]
