: We saw some floor damage around the tolet so remove the tolet to see. We have to replace the section
I use a solid brass closet floor flange in situations like yours. If you have a "lead bend", you can pound the lead inward with a hammer, drop the flange over, and then pound the lead back over the flange. A few wood screws and you're done. An even tricker job, is to replace the "lead bend" with new plastic pipe and flange all the way into the cast iron fitting below the floor with a fernco bushing.
