    I have two American Standard wall hung toilets which I believe are original to the 1965 house due to one being green in color and the other pink. I need some help on these because one is cracked at the waste flange from improper installation so I need to move the other toilet to replace the broken one while I remodel a bathroom. I've read up on install procedure and diagrams/specs for the Glenwall (I need to order one now) and would like similar info for these toilets so I know how to properly mount them to the carrier when I move the toilet. Especially the dimension from backing nut surface to waste pipe/horn surface. The info off of the bowl back is: P65 F3100 98 Jul 16 Made in USA. The tank has: "Standard" F-4049 Tank Made in USA 451L 63.

    I would also like to know if the Glenwall would mount to my existing carrier. I will measure to confirm this when I get a chance.

    Thanks

    The new pressure assist Glenwall will work as a replacement on your carrier.

    I bought a Zurn Neo Seal ring today and it pretty much explains what the proper depth is for compression of the seal. Looks pretty self explanatory anyways so it shouldn't be a problem when it comes time to move.

    The previous owner of the house apparently didn't know how to mount a wall hung because they replaced the drywall with a piece of plywood and clamped the toilet to the plywood with no backing nuts. No wonder the porcelain waste horn on the toilet is cracked to pieces and was leaking.

    toilet

    The backing nuts on THREE bolts are set even with the wall surface and then the large metal washers are placed over them. The bowl is set in place and the acorn nuts are tightened onto those THREE bolts to clamp the toilet solidly to the wall. THEN the forth acorn nut, usually the upper right one is placed on the fourth bolt and turned until it just TOUCHES the toilet.
