1928 Bathroom subfloor/rot etc.


Hi Everyone-
been lurking but decided to start a new thread although my issue is much like Jonscheets below.
The house is a 1928 Craftsman duplex. The lower unit had a tenant for 6 yrs. she just left and I noticed her toilet was so loose I can't believe she used it like that - water damage all around - I tore out the linoleum, and the floor consist of 1x6's nailed on the joists (which looked ok when I crawled under but space very tight! - 1') one layer of 3/8" plywood, with lots of leveler on it and then the linoleum - that's it.
I was hoping to maybe tile it, leave the shower enclosure, which I have patched and will get spray refinished next week.
the 1x6's look MOSTLY ok but around the toilet not so much
toilet flange is cast iron
can I kill/remove top layer of mold add wood hardener & filler to repair 1x6 area?
then add a new layers of ply & hardi board?
do I stick with such thin ply? 3/8" w a 1/4" hardi?
what happens with the flange??
Thanks for all the help!! everyone here is so kind.

Ripped out rest of the sub floor today-
the more I look at it and the two thresholds I realize I can't raise the floor.
So 3/8" + the linoleum
What would be the best new subfloor?
Do not want to rip up the 1x6's since they run under the tub and are of the old 1x6 size.
Any recommendations on how to proceed?
Thanks!

Ya keep on going and cut out the rotted usless 1 X 6's.
Use a Tow Kick saw to cut out right along the walls? (remove the baseboards first)
Replace the whole thing with 3/4" Advantec subflooing.
Easyest way to remove the flange is with a chain cutter, Home Dopot rents them. Drain will just snap off and can be but back together with a Fernco coupling.

Thanks,
The joist run parallel to the tub. There is one about 3" out from tub. Would I cut up to tub edge? Then I have nothing to nail to and don't think I have room to hang another joist in that location.
with sub floor and 1x6's gone I then have 1 1/4" of wood to replace-
why would I cut the flange?
TIA

Sprayed area with bleach on Friday - think I will go in tomorrow and sand a bit around the toilet
add some wood hardener to the area
fill slightly where I sanded,
replace 3/8" subfloor with ?
and put down a linoleum floor
Any reasons this is a bad plan?
