I'll look for a reducer -- I have a hunch that I'm not going to find it though. I saw in another thread here the idea of a threaded male adapter to a wye section. There was a drawing diagram by Massplumber -- I'll try to repost it here:

The urinal is going on a 4.5 inch soil pipe that vents to the roof -- there are 3 of these roof vents in an 1800 square foot house -- which in my amateur opinion, is well vented. Am I right?
There are 2 fixtures above, a shower and a toilet. Nothing will be used simultaneously. The urinal will be used about once a month when I have the knuckleheads over and otherwise will sit dorment.
If the only way is to take a section of cast iron soil pipe out, then the entire idea is going to be scraped. I've been there before and swore I'd never return, heh!
I bought the urinal brand new, in the box, for $15 -- I'll take the hit or just sell it.
Just to give you a general philosophy of what I'm trying to do here, it's like this:
I envision a low-cost, non-permanent, jury-rigged, novelity item that (I'm thinking) should function adequately with minimal "rule" following -- if I'm wrong, let me know, I have a good set of hands, can turn wrenches and sweat pipes but I have zero expertise in plumbing theory.
All and any feedback is welcome!
