Question about Plumbing
It is basically trial and error. Remove the faceplate by unscrewing the two screws. With the lever in the up position, pull it straight up and out of the drain. You may have to jiggle and play with it a little to work it out of there. There are adjusting nuts with which to raise or lower the barrel. You want to raise it. If you raise it too far, the drain won't close all the way so adjust in small increments and test each time to get the proper flow.

SOURCE: Slow draining tub.
You need to run a snake through the overflow. I'm sure there is hair that is caught in it. You remove the overflow cover. The p-trap is just about 8 to 12 inches below. There isn't a need to go any further but it doesn't hurt.

your close to figuring it out,
I would guess you have a hair clog in the trap. they have inexpensive plastic rods (like a long zip tie) with serrated edges on it to capture the hair. Home Depot or Lowe's or Menards will have these

Okay, remove 2 phillips head screws at lever handle/overflow.
Pull firmly with much effort and bowing the connecting rod a bit.
Up will come a heavy duty spring on the end of the rod.(prolly a big slimly hair ball too!)
Hope you get the spring, cause that's what works the drain stop.
If spring doesn't come out you'll have to "fish" it out.
Clean everything up real good and flush drain good also now.
The "Secret" now is to put the Lever,rod and spring assembly back in and replace screws and get the lever flipped to the left BEFORE you put the Drain Stop in.

Testimonial: "The info was very helpful and thanks for the "secret"!"
yes it can be changed without removing the tub, but you must open up wall, floor whatever it takes to be able to see all this drainage, as you can see, you can't change the parts from in the tub,.....good luck, cracklin joe
