Once you get the old toilet out. You will find a flange mounted to the top of the tank. If it is in good shape and in the right position, the new unit will bolt right up.
The slots for the flange bolts should be a 9 and 3 o'clock for the new unit.
In thinking back. The hidden bolt on the left side, the plug I spoke of in my last post may be on the outside. It's just been too many years since I did the job.

I bought the adapter kit assuming I'd need it. It requires you to screw in 8 long screws to secure it it to the base. Isn't the holding tank right below the toilet?

I assume is I had to install the adapter the screws would penetrate through the platform and into the tank. I'm hoping someone will tell me that the platform my toilet sits on is elevated off of the tank? Anyone?

Thanks
Dan

Here's what I have after the toilet is removed.

I must have to remove the old orange flange (screws and all) and install the one I have that will enable me to mount the toilet bolts at the 9 and 3 position.

Again, won't the new screws I install puncture my holding tank or would it be going through plywood?

Don't use screws any longer then the plywood is thick. Don't risk putting a hole in your black water tank.
