toilet leak
Posted by Gary on July 27, 2004 at 20:57:31:
I recently replaced parts in the toilet tank on a Crane toilet, circa 1970, including the flush valve w/overflow tube. When water first entered the tank, it leaked from around the outside of the large plastic hex nut on the outside bottom of the tank which secures the flush valve. No amount of hand tightening has helped. I removed the flush valve,cleaned the porcelain around the large hole in the bottom of the tank, and put another rubber gasket on top of the tapered flush valve gasket, which had no effect on the leakage. The flush valve is seated directly on porcelain, which is in good shape around the lip of the hole. What should I try next??
