Center of flange 12.5 from rough wall 12 from finish wall.

If 4" there now use a 4 x 3 rubber fernco, then a 3" PVC with a 90 and 4 x 3 PVC Schd 40 closet flange.

Thanks Ron, also is it okay to do the entire vent and drain with 2inc? I was going back and fourth trying to get the 1 1/2 pieces and they were all out. So I purchashed everything 2 inc, vent and drain.

Yes, the vent I am going to use is comming right out of the 4 inc stack, and yes its going rigt to the roof. I am going to cut the cast iron 2inc vent and continue with my 2 inc pvc vent. Also on the toilet, why are you suggesting to go from 4inc to 3inc, I'm curious? Thanks.

Forgot to mention, the 4 inc pipe comming out of the stack was cut by an idiot, and he left only about 1 1/2 to 2inc of pipe to grab onto the fernco coupling. Will this leak in the long run?

Thanks a mill, that's been worry me!!! I looked at it, and flipped. I thought it wasn't long enough to grab the rubber coupling. Thanks again Ron for all your help.

Hey Ron, forgot to mention, the 2 inc vent that you always asked whats this? I mark it on the drawing, that pipe(2inc) actually goes downstairs to the kitchen and it is the drain and vent for the kitchen sink. I will take pictures of it this weekend. I capped it off, after it goes downstairs.

Make sure you keep kitchen connected to the venting, if the tub has a new vent relocated then just cap the old tub line near the tee that is there now.
