    Is there still part of an iron flange I need to remove? I removed one iron flange that you can see the pieces of. Was that an extension flange?

    When I put the new plastic flange down the pipe, do I screw it into the existing metal? Or do I need to expose concrete? In which case, I would have to pour new concrete. Is there any adhesive I need to use between plastic flange and iron pipe.

    This is a different toilet. The tank lever blocks the adjustment rod from floating to the top of the water, causing it to run constantly.

    Any idea how I can fix this?

    Turn your valve a 1/4 turn or so that it's not hitting your flush lever is my opinion .

    For anyone who cares...

    This couldn't have turned out any better. I filled in underneath the cast iron flange with concrete, drilled through the cast iron +concrete, and Tapconned the new flange in the ground.

    How do I take the water supply line off? When I try to spin the nut, the fill valve spins with it. Even when I hold the fill valve, the base of the fill valve spins with the supply line.

    I started cutting it with a hacksaw. I can't imagine this is how it's supposed to be done. It still isn't off, and I'm worried about accidentally cutting the fill valve.
