Here's a drill bit that should accomplish what Johnboy555 describes.

Cut the vertical pipe about 2' above the crack, and directly above the hub of the fitting. Use the Hub Saver as directed...make sure to hold the drill in a VERY straight line to the hub. Glue a new 2" piece of pipe into the hub and install a using a Fernco or repair union (connector) at the top.
Buying a hub saver for a one time use will cost more that all of the parts needed for the job...

But yea I have one so I would use it....

I agree...

But as far as the s-trap - p-trap that is a p-trap but it is too close to the sani-tee so it is "Crown Vented" 2 pipe diameters is the minimum distance.

Of course most of you don't realize this but being in the local area I do...
The original poster is from East Haven, CT also known as "Stavin" and this is the town Henry Winkler lived in while attending the Yale Drama School. There is no doubt in my mind that the Happy Days character Fonzie was developed there by him after studying the locals...

That said with my knowledge of the area I am 99.99% certain that the kitchen sink comes down that line from the floor above and proper venting doesn't exist anyway....

I think I paid about $10-$11 for the drill I have. Exact model as in Murph's post. Has really come in handy when replacing some of these totally cemented ABS drains and traps!
