Default Replace a shower with. Used to be a tub.

I bought a home that was built in 1966. The guest bath has a shower that is the same size as a tub. I am assuming there used to be a tub and it was removed in the 80's. There is a 6 inch curb that you have to step over to get in shower.

I have removed most tile on walls and will get to the floor and curb soon. My question is.... I just need to break that curb and floor out to reveal the new drain right? Once there I will need to reposition the drain back to its original spot. I will have a plumber help me with this... Just want to make sure I do not overlook anything

You'll expose the drain piping for this setup when you remove the tile/subfloor.

Adjustment of the drain system should be manageable.
