Water leak at flapper. replaced flapper but still leaks. I assume there is a problem at flush valve . Where is the model # shown on the toilet. I find one # on underside of lid? viz; 1081377733 is this correct? This toilet was probably manufactured prior to 1992

Replace flapper, it is worn out.Turn off water valve. Flush toilet, remove flapper. Then replace flapper, adjust chain to same size as old one, then turn water back on.

1) If spud washer between tank and bowl is leaking, you will get moisture on outside of tank in that area.
Use dry paper towel and run around area for evidence of moisture.
2) The flush valve is sold separately for typical 2-part toilets. Sold at hardware/home center.
See image of product:
3) Home centers also see spud washers for typical 2-part toilet.
You can use your old spud washer, and you can seal it during re-assembly using rectorseal
See image of rectorseal
4) 'water hammer' is when pipes make banging or rattling noise when faucet or valve is shut off.
Add air chamber to water line near faucet or valve.
Air chamber is 18" piece of pipe with cap that sticks up from water line.
Since water will not compress, shutting off flow of water stops forward motion of column of water causes energy to be dispersed into the pipes.
Air can be compressed. Adding air chamber is like putting shock absorber into water line, so forward energy of water harmlessly compresses the air for a moment.

I had one just like that where the overflow tube that the flapper connects to was cracked. It sounds like this is the only part you have not replaced. The flapper may not be seating onto the inlet either. If you replaced the flapper with a cheaper version of flapper, some new ones will even leak.
