I am trying to convert my tub stopper to a pop up style or twist and turn because the lever style is jammed and i have no access to change the whole works out. My first pop up stopper had too big a thread so I got one that had a sleeve with two different threads on it. The smaller thread size would go in about a 1/4 inch and lock up. It turned out it has a fine thread pattern and my drain fitting has a coarser thread. Where can I get a drain stopper with the coarse thread on the smaller portion?

Try Home Depot or Lowes plumbing department. If you can't find what you want check the yellow pages for a small plumbing store, they sell a lot of specialty items that Home Depot or Lowes doesn't carry.
Been there done that, The threads are different in my heel portion compared to the one on the stopper i bought at either place. The tub fixtures are about 20 years old. Maybe they used different thread patterns then.
I see another person has suggested Lowes or Home Depot. The people who work there are especially helpful and seem to know exactly what it is you need.
I wanted to tell you about my drain and plug. The plug in my tub leaks. So I bought a round plastic that goes atop the plug. It works very well. It was made for this purpose, but I dont know what to call it. lol... I think I might have bought it at Dollar Tree, but its been so many years ago that I cant say for sure.
