    I am going to install an oatey cast iron flange over a 3" ABS pipe, then anchor it to the floor. Any tricks? The website provides little install info. A test fit showed it was very tight, and maybe a little "too tight" to get the screws on the brass clamp ring started. Use any lube? Just saying, it seems like it would work well, but maybe a PITA.

    Why are you using a cast iron flange with an ABS pipe?

    I want the strength of a CI flange. The pipe happens to be 3" ABS. The Oatey fitting gives me both.
