Followed directions on how to adjust the cam and when i pull the 'lift rod' up, the stopper will still not go down and be flush with sink. Used different settings on cam. Turned it all the counterclockwise and it will not move at all. Clockwise, it will go down some but not all the way. Now here is the strange thing; when I pull the whole unit out of the sink and attach the 'speed connect', the stopper goes down all the way. What am I missing?

Re: Speed connect drain will not go down completely
Make sure that the compression nut is not too tight where it could bind up the plunger rod. I'm sure you have probably gotten up under to see if it is hitting anything. Also, make sure that the lift rod is adjusted correctly. I am leaning more towards the unit being bound up some how.

When you pull out the stopper is it completely intact? there should be a hole at the bottom of the stopper were a rod goes through. That moves on an axis pulling and pushing the stopper up and down as you pull and push the lever. You have to make sure you get the rod in that hole for the pop-up to work. You can google pop up assembly and look for an diagram. good luck
there is a small compression nut on the drain, it needs to be tightened slightly. look under the sink when you pull the lever up close the stopper, you will see where it connects to the drain. tighten that nut slightly.
do not over tighten or you won't be able to move the stopper at all, you just need enough pressure to hold the weight of the lifting rod and stopper in place.
YOU CAN TRY BY ADJUSTING THE ROD ,UNDERNEITH THE SINK ,MUST POP-UP ASSEMBLIES,HAVE A ROD COMING OUT OF THE DRAIN AND A ROD WITH SEVERAL HOLES ON ,IT TO ADJUST HOW FAR YOU CAN PULL THE ROD UP ,WHICH IN TURNS SHOULD MAKE THE STOPPER GO DOWN,ALSO A COMMON PROBLEM IS THERE IS TO MUCH HAIR AND TOOTHPASTE STUCK ON THE STOPPER ITSELF,SO SIMPLY UN SCREW THE NUT, THAT IS HOLDING THE ROD INTO THE DRAIN ,THEY LIFT UP THE STOPPER,THE STOPPER SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BE REMOVED WITHOUT TAKING THE NUT AND ROD OUT ,IF SO YOU MIGHT HAVE TO REPLACE THE WHOLE POP-UP ASSEMBLY
Pegasus make several models but I'll make an assumption that it has a pop-up plug actuated by a rod just behind the tap head.
Under the sink in the cabinet you will see the rod comes down and connects to an adjustment fitting and into the main drain line from the sink. There will be a fitting on the drain line holding the connection. Inside is a metal ball and connecting rod that links to your plug.
Remove the fitting. Slide the ball and rod partially out. Put your plug back in. Engage the rod again (you will need to fiddle a bit here). Tighten the fitting. Run water to ensure the fitting is tight and not leaking.
Should be good to go.

I don't understand the bend down rhing. The drain stopper, as you call it, has a rod that goes through the end of it to enable opening and closing with the vertical control.If I'm on the same page, under the sink on the backsie there is nut that holds the stopper control.. It has a nut you need to remove and line up the short end with the stopper slot, then put the nut back on to secure the ball. Don't overtighten. Now the log end of that same rod is secured with a spring clip to the un and down control rod . It can be adjusted by moving the spring clip up or down on the control rod. noyhing isbroken, just pulled apart or out of adjustment.
You will need to get under there and unscrew the popup rod located on the back of the drain. pull out the rod, drop the stopper in there and push the rod through the hole in the bottom of the stopper. screw the nut back on.
Hi Im here to help. There is a lift rod that is connected to a pivoit rod that lifts the pop-up drain up and down. If this has become disconnected, or broken. heres a link (scrool down) to a picture of how it works. http://www.hometips.com/content/popups_intro.html
