toilet tank leaks so that it refills spontaneously every 20 minutes or so.

Our condo has "off-brand" toilets The mark on them is CW. The tank on one has a leak so that it fills spontaneously every 20 minutes or so. None of the hardware stores (Home Depot, Lowe's or Dixieline) recognizes the CW mark, so replacement parts for it present a problem. We have replaced the flapper to no avail (the flapper we replaced was a cantilevered type.) So now we're in the process of replacing the whole toilet flush valve with one that has a flapper valve that is not cantilevered; the only problem is, the overflow pipe has to be cut down to a 6" height (seems strange we couldn't find a kit that came "ready"for the job.) Are we on the right track to solve the periodic leak? Does anyone recognize the CW mark, and can advise us about proper replacement parts? Thank you for this great site.
