: DEAR,

Open the 3 1/2 inch drain cap and dump LOTS of water into it to see if it will take pressurized flush. It would be a good idea to make sure that this really is a sewer line, and not just a drain line. I just have to assume that you know that. Dropping LOTS of water into it will also tell you if the vent is properly venting the flush flow. If it drains and flushes okay, install the toilet. If it doesn't. you'll need to determine exactly where the sewer line (not the drain) is, and if it is properly vented. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Have you ever heard that? Why not call three licensed plumbers and get an estimate for them to do the job? then you'll know if it's such an easy job a you hope it is.
