Old clay pipe leaking around concrete basement floor


Our house has the old clay pipe drain lines. We've replaced most of it with PVC but the main line that goes into the concrete basement floor has a leak at the base. How would we install new PVC into the floor once we remove the old clay pipe?

Thanks in advance

Rick

if its under the floor id cut the bell off the clay pipe and use a clay/pvc fernco fitting to join them.
around here the clay usually doesnt start till about 4' outside the foundation
