    Thanks for the info, Jim. Even with that extra 1/4 inch I think it will be very close if that is added to 3/4 inch. One side of the toilet is under 11 inches to the wall, the other just over. I...

    I just thought I would update my progress. I went to Home Depot to get some 00 washers and sure enough they are different from the 00 washers that I tried. For some reason the ones I have are...

    I did notice these Pignose washers that may be a little different from the standard beveled washer. At .225 thick I think they are not as thick as the standard 0 bevel. I guess I am still wondering...

    Thanks everyone. I tried the 00 and it was quite good but still with a slow leak. So I trimmed the 0 to make it fit and it was not as good as the 00 but better than the original. So as John said...

    Here is a close up of a stem with a washer on it. Mansfield like mine but mine is probably older. What kind of washer is that? I don't think it is the normal beveled. I managed to get the beveled...

    Thanks John. I just tried putting a 0 beveled washer in there and it was not possible to get it in. I really think the 6 slots were there originally on the washer. They aren't on the Pignose ones...

    OK I have some pics. I wonder if those slots were there on the washer or if formed by forcing it in. But on the stem it does say Pignose 0. Also on the washer. Thanks.

    Thanks Jimbo. I see what you mean. The Pignose washers this company sells don't have the slots around them like mine but otherwise they look the same I think. So I am not sure they would fit. I...
