OK I am definantly not a plumber. I went to Lowes and got a new kit to reattatch the tank to the toilet. :eek: I have 3 bolts, 6 rubber washers, 6 metal washers, and 6 nuts plos the triangle piece of rubber and Large nut.
I am just confused on the order of washers and nuts. :confused:

Can someone help me please. The bag is made in Tiwan and there are no directions.

If there is enough room between the tank and bowl, then use a bolt with a rubber washer from inside the tank. Then a metal washer and nut on the bottom of the tank. Finally a rubber washer, metal washer, and nut on the bottom of the bowl to fasten the tank securely. However, if the triangular piece does not permit the nuts under the tank, then do not use them.

That was what I needed to know. No leaks first time around. :D
