connecting closet flange to soil stack

I just replaced the subfloor and installed new underlayment in my bathroom. The closet flange came off the soil stack (cast iron) when taking up the old subfloor. Got a replacement closet flange, PVC with the rubber gasket. The soil stack is about 1/2" above the underlayment. The finish floor will be Armstrong cushion step vinyl, about 1/8" thick. Do I need to grind down the stack level with the floor before installing the closet flange?

Thanks!
Theresa

If the cast iron is above the finished floor, yes you have to lower the height down somehow. Or you will have to build a cutout of the toilet with wood to raise it up to the iron height, which won't look good.

flange

Thanks, found out the section I was referring to is actually lead. I got it down to the floor no problem.
