the escaping water really must be coming past the trim flange of the drain shoe.

Removing the old one is the hard part of the repair.

I have checked the assembly and parts all are their, tried new parts still have same problem. What's waste overflow? sounds to complicated. GOING FOR PLAN B. I am going to put in a foot stopper in stead and see if that works forget the lever! I hope I can get the basket out, in this house one never knows if things were put in right .I'll spray the basket with some PB BLASTER To loosen up any sealer I have a plug wrench well see what happens tomorrow. DiDi problem solved!!
