    Ripped out the old toilet and turns out the old flange wasn't even attached to the floor. It had a wax ring under and above it... it didn't leak so I guess it worked, oh well. :rolleyes:

    The drain pipe is made out of lead, and top is level with the floor.

    The floor is concrete.

    Went to plumbing supply house and they sold me a brass flange and a lead pipe extension.

    What the heck do I do now? How do I get a tight seal between the existing lead drain and the extension? I can't just jam it in there I need a seal between the two pipes somehow, right?
