All installed, new base seal too. Turns out it had not been replaced like we thought. Tiles will remain out while the floor dries.

grats on fixing it

Was the crack because someone over tightened that metal band?

One parting tip for re-assembly...

When you install said metal band, make sure to put the clamping part in the rear, or when you go to put that plastic piece that covers the base, it will not fit.

Ask me how I know.

Not sure what caused the crack but it runs up from the clamp, all the way across the back of the bowl, and back down to the clamp again. I don’t know how you could tighten it so much to crack the porcelain. The base flange/seal was past its prime too. Fixing both seems to have done the trick (knock on wood). Floor is already dry but we’re keep the fan on it anyway. Got a few humid days coming up.
