Shower drain replacement

Hello
As I've dropped the belly pan as part of a chassis re-hab/paint ------
It looks like a good time to replace the shower drain as it is a little worn out looking.
There is a square hole in the ply wood floor for access under.

Any body know if it's a special size ? (it's flange on top is 2-5/8" wt 1-7/8" pipe ID)
Thanks and Happy New Year
Del

it is probably a standard abs shower drain for a plastic shower. I replaced mine with a drain kit that had a spring loaded stopper. Very nice. I believe I had to cut the vertical piece of pipe above the trap to install it.

I was thinking I would try a HEPvO waterless valve instead of the trap if I got into that area. 1 less place to freeze.

Thanks BigAl.....I think I got it. It's more of a sink drain size or so a plumber told me.
Wazbro....had'ent even considered that....I'll look it up.

The one in my sink looks identical to the one in the shower. (Except that the one in the sink is in better condition.) I haven't taken both out to compare, though. I'm just looking at them installed.

I have a new sink that will require a different drain. My plan is to switch them when I get the new sink installed. When that will happen is sort of up in the air.
