I tried to replace the stopper with the push type in the bottom of the tub. I removed all the parts and went to install the new threading and it was wider than the old threading. So I tried to put the old one back in and the pipe dropped under the tub and it is no longer flush with the bottom of the tub. Can anyone help???

Great help!! But I'm stuck. I finally got the old drain assembly out but the new drain assembly will only screw in about halfway. Any thoughts? Perhaps the threading in the drain is dirty so the threading in the new assembly can't get on? I've tried greasing the threads up and have tried using CLR to clean the old threading in the drain. Any other suggestions? Thanks for your help!!

This was just what I needed, I didn't know what the drain asembly looked like or what to do to get it out. Thought I had to pay a plumber. You're the greatest. Thanks for the help.
