I repair them all the time because the trip lever freezes up or it breaks. The brass plunger can get stuck in the overflow tube. Skoro already explained how to remove it.

Sometimes the linkage/yoke needs to be replaced.

I’ve worked on them that were older than me.

I have 5-6 brand new brass trip lever overflow assemblies in stock. Pfister brand, good quality. Been using them for yrs. Basic plumbing for around here.

A lot of people use the cheaper plastic ones with the pot metal drain. Some use the sch 40 half kits, I have some on the shelf.

I lubed the trip lever so now it works. The tenant wants to know if there is a way to keep it open for showers. My first thought is to remove the stopper but then baths cant be taken. Any thoughts?
The trip lever should stay down by itself.

If it’s not staying down by itself the entire faceplate needs to be replaced.
