Sioux closet flange


I bought this Sioux Chief push tite closet flange because I had seen this video made by them. I need to extend it by a few inchs as shown in their video. Problem is, nothing fits. The 3" pvc measures out at 3.040 I.D., the flange is tapered, from the bottom it measures 3.380 O.D. and goes to 3.420 at the top. The I.D. of the flange is 3.080 at the bottom. I wanted to use this flange for the ease of being able to just drop it into my 4" cast iron. Any simple solutions? Thanks TH

Sorry for the delay, I have not used it yet so am not sure it will work. The flange is 3 3/8". I took the gasket off it and put it on a piece of 3" pvc, 3 1/2" OD. Then bought a new flange that is 3 1/2 ID. I tried it on a piece of 4" cast pipe and I can get it inside, it is tight! When I am ready for it I will use some kind of flapper wheel to clean the inside of the cast so it will slide in easier.
