Price pfister tub stopper problem


I have a Price Pfister lever type tub stopper/overflow assembly in my bathtub. The lever was not operating the stopper. I took apart the chrome lever assembly. The threaded rod inside had come loose and was no longer attached to lever assembly. When I look down the overflow line the rod is no where to be seen. Is there a way to reteive the rod/nut to reattach it to the lever assembly?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Got the stopper out and replaced the entire assembly including waste shoe, overflow, etc.

Replaced the hot, cold and diverter vavle stems & seats. After I tightened the new diverter valve down, the handle does not turn enough to allow shower to operate. When I loosened the stem assembly a little, handle turns & shower operates, but leaks slowly at handle/stem assembly. Anyone know the reason this is happening?
