Greetings all-
I have a very old bathtub with a pop up/press down stopper. This type has no lever or knob. Anyway, this stopper does not seal properly, and needs some work. My question is: how do I remove the stopper? It will turn both directions, but doing so doesn't seem to losen it any.

There is a faceplate where the lever or knob should be, but I don't think this type of stopper would have anything there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

There probably is a set-screw up under the stopper.
Good Luck!
