Removing tub help?

I'm removing the tub to put down new sub flooring in intire bathroom. House is peer and beem. When I take the drain out of the tub is that all the disconnecting there is or do I need to get under the house at the tub and take something elese loose ? I have the knobes and inside things already off.
Thanks

does your tub have an overflow drain? If so, you need to disconnect that also before moving the tub.

Thanks thezster. Took the drain out and when I unhooked the stoper arm it droped down a little bit and could then see the tub was free.

Glad it worked.. I'm going to assume you're reinstalling the same tub after floor repairs. If so - remember, if your floor height changes, you'll have to change the length of the drain pipes (should be adjustable fittings before the p-trap). Having an access panel would make that job a lot easier....

Yes i'm going back with the same tub and replacing the 3/4 what I call partical board (the stuff that swells up twice its size when it gets wet) with 3/4 plywood. Dont have a access panel as you mention but thats a good idea. May try to figure out where to put one. Any sugestions?

Thanks
