      Have grinder! Will fit !
      Supposed to be 3.5 inch for old metal pipe. Had to grind inside piece down to even fit in pipe. Then grind a 1/4" off rubber plug piece cause its more like 3&3/4 -3&7/8" it works but a 4 minute job turns into a half hour of grinding to fit job.

      Item is exactly what I needed to replace the rusted out sewer cleanout in my house. Had to remove part of the flange, due to pipe and floor interference, but that was easy to do.

          Works great, seals well, seems to be of good quality that will last a long time. It would be nice to have a large butterfly nut instead of hex thus 4 stars.
