In response to Re: American Standard Champion Tank/Bowl Gasket
I had the EXACT same problem with an American Standard tank. I kept worrying about trying to tighten the bolts too much when trying to bring the tank down flush on the toilet base. I actually looked for a smaller gasket but could not find one.. I even showed the guy at the home store where I bought it. There was no magic to my solution, I just pushed the tank down to "squish" the gasket as much as possible and ALTERNATELY tightened the bolts (as per the instructions). In the end the tank DID NOT completely sit all its weight on the bowl and DID have a SLIGHT "rock" to it but when you put the lid on the tank, it secures everything up.
