Sewer cleanout..
 
We have an old castiron main drain leaving the house and want to install a proper cleanout about 2' from the house. Last time it needed to be snaked/declogged the plumber just dug up the pipe outside close to the house knocked a 2" hole on top of the pipe, ran the snake to clear the clog somewhere out in the yard then caped the hole with a slit rubber sleve with clamps. I was wanting to put a cleanout in this location with cap, is there a specific T fitting that will go cast iron to PVC or should I just cut out a 1' or so section of the drain, insert a angled PVC T with screw on cap and use the rubber sleves on each end to connect back with the iron pipe?

You'll need a 2way clean out tee, 2 no hub adapters, 2 no hub couplings a threaded female adapter and plug. piece of pipe a saws all with a diamond blade or a chain cutter, or a grinder to cut the pipe. not a difficult task, this is the correct way of installing a clean out.
