You must be from outside the States. I can't figure out what an acre is, around here it is 43,560 square feet. And exactly what is a clang? Around here its the sound you get when you hit a bell.

OP: "A acre on my toilet clang will turn but not back out of the wood I got the other 3 out with no problem should I put a new flange over the old one with just 3 screwd"
Translation: An anchor on my toilet flange will turn but not back out of the wood. I got the other 3 out with no problem. Should I put a new flange over the old one with just 3 screws?"

I'll leave an informed answer to someone else; me, I'd figure out how to replace the missing anchor and reduce the chance of having a leak in the future.
