    Terry,

    I'm having trouble figuring out how to take this toilet off the floor. They used some type of threaded ball bearing or something...I know it can't be a nut they stripped because it's polished. Have you ever encountered something like this?

    How do I fix this? I can't tighten the bolt to see if that's why there is a leak. I know part of the problem is a hairline crack on both sides of the bowl, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to replace the toilet.

    What do you think?
    :confused:

    cracked toilet

    never mind the hack saw, just keep tapping the bolt area with a hammer.
    Replace the toilet.
    Sounds like it's screwed to the floor and not bolted to a closet flange.
    If so you will have to make a repair there before you install a new toilet..
