@Ruggercat68, I think the hardest toilet repair I've ever had to make was a total replacement of a cracked commode. The clerk at the hardware store talked me through it, though, and I found someone willing to help with the heavy lifting. You never realize how heavy and awkward a toilet can be until you try to lift one out of a cramped bathroom. It was a really messy and smelly job, but it probably saved me at least $100 doing it myself.
One important thing to remember is to stuff a rag into the exposed drain once you pull off the commode. If you don't, your whole house will smell like sewer gas for hours.
