Dear Bud
Sorry it took me so long to write back!
I told my husband your instructions and we finally got down to the harware store. We looked at ballcocks, and considered what rest of insides of toilet looked like. We decided on just replacing them all. It was under $10- to do this. We got the one peice unit that is also water saver. Guess what? No more freight train noises! This got my husbands self confidence going so he even replaced the bathroom faucet in the down stair bathroom and some other small stuff that I had been 'nagging' at him to do for months. Such an easy fix for a terriable sound and embarassing sound.
Thanks for your help!
Kristina
