    Hi-
    I have recently remodeled a bathroom. I got rid of the toilet that was there because it was from a long time ago. I uploaded a picture of what it looked like. That is the one that is in the other bathroom.

    My problem is that the (cast iron set in tile) rough in is at 14" to the bolts. I have a 1" supply. I want to keep the flushometer valve in keeping with the look of the prewar apartment. If I use any of the flushometer toilets that are available, the toilet projects too far into the space and could potentially not allow the door of the bathroom to close.

    I tried to fit the Gerber 25642. It left a full 10" behind the bowl for the flushometer install. While this is possible, it leaves an awkward space behind the toilet and maybe 1/8" for the door to swing in front of the toilet. Can anyone point me to a bowl that will work with a flushometer, a 14" rough in and will not project any further than 26" from the finished wall? I really dont care if it is top or back spud at this point, I just need something that will fit. Can anyone point me to a place to find "New Old Stock" or even salvage if a new bowl for this application does not fit?

    Many thanks in advance for your help and expertise.

    Your problem is that most flushometer toilets are designed for a 10" rough, although a few are 12" and even fewer are 7". Complicating matters for you is that the majority of FV toilets are elongated and 2" longer. This means that ANY toilet is going to project further with a 14" rough in.
