What are "street sixties"? I assume they are "elbows" that turn 60 degrees, but why are they called "street sixties? " thanks for your patience with my lack of knowledge of plumbing...

A "Street" fitting is a fitting with a hub (female) on one end and a spigot (male) on the other end. They got the "Street" part of their name due to the fitting (test tee) that used to be required at the connection of the building sewer at the street. The Sewer at the street always terminated with a hub (female) and a street fitting was required to connect the two and allow the plumber to pressure test the sewer with water.

In your case, you have already installed a 3" street closet flange -- that's why your 45 slipped over the bottom of it. I believe I see at least one street 45 that isn't being used in one of your pictures.

I am a plumber and I see the angles and distance you have to work with in your picture and I am confident that a pair of 60s or maybe one 60 and one street 60 will take care of it.

Bruce

Edit: I went back to your pictures and I do not see a street 45. All you have are regular 45s.

nice job on the closet flange . to make the 45's work you need to cut down your 3'' abs pipe leave about 3''above the floor. you may need a 45 deg. 3'' street ell. put your rubber coupling on abs pipe , then 3'' street ell, bell side going to closet flange . put your other 45 on the flange and see if you line up . eye ball it ,if you line up take a measurement from inside bell to bell. if you don't line up you may need 60 deg. ells . they did a really bad job at the factory . now if your 45 deg. ells will line up you can fudge a small amount of bad line up at the rubber coupling . good luck

Hey all... It ain't pretty, but if it don't leak, I won't speak ( cuss) and, thus far, it's dry as a Baptist picnic.
One 45, one 60, two rubber sleeves, 5 trips to 3 hardware stores, and I'm laughing. My FRF plumber friends must be cracking up, but I am nonetheless proud of the results. A debt of gratitude to all of you...Click image for larger version

If you don't like the looks of it, get some paint and spray paint it. If it doesn't leak you are a winner!
