Hi and first off - thank you for any ideas you may have. After a leaky toilet and rusted flange & subfloor was removed, this is what I am left with. The new flange hits the angle on the inside of the top piece and won’t fit. The inside pipe is 3”. Is there a better flange idea or cut the top off (or cut one or both angles)? Thank you so very much for any advice!

You could use a RamBit and drill out the 3" going into the hub of the fitting and glue a new pipe and closet flange on.
The other option is a closet flange that glues inside the existing 3" pipe. You would just need to cut some off the top there.

They also make this in PVC, by Sioux Chief.
