First remove the stopper part by closing the stopper and then unscrewing it (CC). Then you'll see the drain flange, with a crossbar that blocks you from snaking the drain. This unscrews (CC) with difficulty, since it should have been installed with plumber's putty under its rim. Sometimes you can put plier handles in there and then put a wrench on the pliers, but you may break the crossbar. It's better to spend $10, if you have to, on "Tub Drain Remover" http://www.homedepot.com/p/Tub-Drain-Remover-HDX170/204218645. It grips in there very well and you can use a wrench or thick screwdriver to get the leverage you need.

The white plastic threads are an adapter for larger drains. This unscrews to expose metal threads. If yours is the smaller drain type it should be fine.
It should work with the provide plate.
So if you already have drain shoe installed, you don't need to use this gasket,I'm assuming?
It looks like it is designed that way
The black washer goes under the tub, between the bottom of the tub and the plumbing. I installed the white bushing into the plumbing, then swapped out the black washer with the old one. Then used plumbers putty under the drain and screwed it down.
Screw driver, needle nose pliers. Problem is getting the old one out. They do make tools for that.
