In response to Re: Mass Confusion...Toilet Tank Mystery - HELP!!
Would I be correct in assuming that you have metal washers between the bolt head and the washers. If so remove them.

: I have recently re-installed our toilet and have a minor issue. I cannot get the leak from the tank to bowl to quit. It is occuring at the two bolt connections. I have done everything by the book...keeping the tank level, not screwing the bolts down too far at a time, making sure there is no residue at the openings for the bolts in the tanks, checked carefully for cracks near the holes, made sure I had a new gasket for the tank to bowl connection, making sure not to over tighten the bolts etc... I am really frustrated over this (my wife will agree) and would really appreciate any help from anybody. Many thanks in advance for your advice.
