HELP Led bend

I removed the old led bend for the toilet and went to replace it with PVC. 4" PVC connection is to small for the old pluming. I was told in NYC years ago they used a size pipe that is not sold any more. It's sunday and pluming supplys are not open today. Do they make a PVC connection for this pipe and anything else you can tell me so I know what to go looking for.

Thank You
John

Would help to know what size is there now.Did you just remove the lead and leave the brass ferrule or did you remove the whole thing from the hub?

Years ago (many years ago), 5" cast iron was common... The fittings for it now can only be found in the oldest of the old supply houses... Don't even bother a hardware store or big box... Go to a Winnelson or other large plumbing supply house... They will have what you need... Take a piece of the pipe you cut out or an exact measurement with you to get exactly what you need...
