SOURCE: can't remove old assembly...stuck in there

You have to remove the tank bolts on either side of the flush valve. Once you remove it, there is a tank to bowl seal that will need to be replaced. Remove the old seal and there will be a huge plastic nut that holds the flush valve to the tank. Remember to use new hardware when reassembling the toilet so that it won't leak sooner rather than later!

SOURCE: old crane toilet, leak between tank and toilet, need new gasket.

You might try looking in an hardware store, or a plumbing shop that has been in business for a long time. Sometimes they have parts that can't be found elsewhere. I would take the old seal with you, if you still have it.

SOURCE: Toilet seat connectors mounted on toilet is loose

There should be a way to tighten the bolts without going that far Here's two things:
Look at the lid, with the seat down. The bolts are sometimes covered with a snap-in palstic cap or flap. If so, pry up with a screwdriver. Then use a screwdriver and wrench to tighten.
If the bolts appear to be cast as a part of the hinge assembly, you should be able to reach around the seat to the back side (no pun intended) of the toilet, and tighten with a wrench.
I sometimes use a 'mirror trick' to get a better idea of what's back there. Just use a small mirror and hold it to where you can see the bolt and not on the back.
Hope this gets you going (oops, another unintentional pun).
Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate this solution..thanx!

SOURCE: What is the best way to remove stuck toilet anchors

try rotating the entire toilet counter clockwise so the bolts are in the insert slot of the toilet flange and rotate the nut and the bolt head should line up and pop free of flange.

How do I stop a small slow leak into bowl of 1 pc Crane toilet?


The seat where the flap sits could have a nick in it. The flap might not be aligned properly. A temporary fix is to put a small amount of Vaseline on the seat and that should stop the water leak.

How do i remove a broken bolt which is embedded in the toilet, the bolt keeps the toilet seat lid fastened to the toilet?


There has to be either a nut and washer under the toilet, or if its reversed a bolt head with a washer under it holding it down. To remove it you can either use a hacksaw blade between the bowl and the bottom of the seat. Or use a dremel tool to slowly cut away the metal rod, etc., from the top. If using hacksaw put down some masking tape on the bowl so you don't scar up the enamel surfacr of the bowl. Work slowly and you will eventulaly cut through it.

My Crane toilet is slowly leaking into the bowl. It is not the flapper (which I replaced) and doesn't seem to be from high water pressure. Could it be the seal?


Check your over flow pipe in the tank to see if you need to lower the water level amount in the tank. If thats not it, it could be the seal thats under your flapper between the tank and base. Simple fix just alittle time consuming

Crane toilets don't flush properly, ball comes down too quickly


adjust the flappers-- either adjust the length of the lift line-from flapper to handle and or the flapper itself not properly mounted on tank seat

How to fix loose toilet seat on old blue toilet


Whether the bolts are nylon or brass, they all come loose after a while. The culprit is oversize holes in the china bowl. To solve the problem, go to the auto parts store and buy a short length of fuel hose, just large enough to slip over the toilet seat bolt. Cut two short pieces of hose off -- about 1/4 inch each -- with a sharp bread knife or utility knife. Fit the pieces of hose into the toilet seat mounting holes in the bowl. If the hose is too large, snip a small segment out of it to make it into a "C" shape, just large enough that the cut ends touch when inserted into the mounting holes. Install the seat as usual and snug up the nuts.

Once movement of the seat is prevented, the bolts tend to stay tight. I've performed this trick on a number of my own and friends' toilet seats and they've stayed put for 8-10 years with no signs of loosening, yet can be removed easily for maintenance and cleaning.

Use fuel hose, as it is durable and does not deteriorate with exposure to air. This trick won't work with electrical tape, duct tape or masking tape, as those materials are too soft and the adhesive cold-flows under pressure.
