1949 American Standard

I need to replace the wax ring on my toilet. When looking it over I discovered that it is an old American Standard toilet from 1949 with 4 bolts instead of 2 like the newer models. Before I tear it apart I would like to know exactly how it is mounted and if I can replace the bolts if they break.(they are pretty rusty) I appreciate any help with this.

Old Toilet

The old toilets used the two front bolts to go to the flange, the back bolts were lags that screwed into the floor, sometimes the back bolts were dummies with caps on them.

Just be careful taking them out, they probably are rusted and you may have to cut them, luck.
