Would one of the HEPvO devices be of any use? They are available in both 1-1/4 inch and 1-1/2 inch sizes.

That definitely looks like something of interest!! I'll have to check that out! Might be nice in the kitchen too. Clear some space under the sink.

Meanwhile, I'll attack it here with what I've got on hand, but might do some measuring and if it looks like it will fit maybe order one or two - one for the tub and one for the kitchen.

Thank you. Never heard of those before.

Talking No Leaks!!

Well, I got a 1-1/4Ē rubber coupler and cut it. I removed that large ridge from the trap with my little dremel (love that tool!) so it would fit in the coupler. Chamfered the inner edge of one end of the cuff a bit to make it easier to get the strainer threads started.

Set the strainer basket into the tub with putty (oil free), wedged in with my needle nose/1x2 assembly and screwed that lock nut with a nice sized washer back on by hand.

Then threaded the collar onto the bottom of the strainer as far as it would go, pushed the end of the trap up into the collar until it reached the bottom of the strainer (and used the original washer between them too, to keep all of the lengths as close to original as possible), tightened up the gear clamps and itís great!

Everything lining up just as it should. Let it sit about a half hour, admiring my work. Poured a couple of gallons of water into the tub and ran outside holding my breathÖ.

No Leaks!!! Dried up the water sitting around the drain in the tub so the putty will have a chance to set up properly, reconnected the ground wires to the frame and I am home about to make a burger on the bbq.

Tomorrow Iíll go back with the jack stands and start on the tires! And Iíll put that cover back on around all my lovely work. Didnít want to jinx myself, so I thought I would give it 24 hrs to see if there is any drippage at all.

Thanks folks. Very satisfying after 4 days of MacGyvering. And quite enjoyed the burger in the afternoon, relaxing.

Now just hope that there were no leaks overnight, and I can put the cover back on and move on to the tires.

And before I do put that cover back on, I will take a peek around under the drain end of the tub - I caught the thread on the soft spot on the tub floor in that area, some folks had cracks, and Wavery and Bill and others - you all mentioned the big gap between the bottom of the tub around the drain and the floor. Since I will be spraying in some foam around the new hole on the bathroom floor for the relocated toilet drain, while I have the can out, maybe I can get something in under the front end of the tub while I have that cover off.
