      You need a 2 flush ell and a 2 closet spud. The flush ells come in 3X 5, 5X 7, etc, so you have to measure the old one to see which one is long enough to replace the old one. You will have to remove the fitting from the toilet, cut and fit the new flush pipe, and then reinstall the new spud and flush pipe at the same time in order to get them to fit together. Then your next project will be to stop it from leaking at the slip nuts.: Help! : The toilet tank hangs on the wall with a 2 pipe connecting the tank to the bowl. The pipe has rusted away.
