hi , the top of the bolt has a square shaft and slots in a grooved metal bracket , Try pulling down on the wingnut as you tighten , you should feel it slot in, once its semmi tight i shouldnt spin , If its been leaking then maybe its sludged up so you should take the cistern off alltogether and reset the rubber ring gasket , that way you can tape the bolt down with gaffa tape to aid reassembly,

I would change out the flush valve itself...it will come with the right gasket....it won't cost anywhere near the price of a new toilet...and it will save you time in the long run..good luck and.thanks for rating my effort....the fang.

Should be a few flat rubber washers and a few metal or heavy plastic washer,But sometimes even when all the parts are right you still need to apply a little silicon or even plumbers putty.I do this to all that I work on,Just as a preventative measure.This is also the quickest and least cost effective way to repair it.
Please take time to rate this fixya

Make sure that you have replaced ALL of the seals in the bottom of the tank. There should be one donut for the pipe itself and the two or three rubbler washers for the bolts.

Try replacing the flapper, they are cheap and so long as the tank and or bowl are not cracked you can replace all of the internal parts and basically have a brand new toilet much cheaper then replacing the entire unit. Go down to your local hardware store and everything you need is in one simple kit with very simple instructions. Good Luck.
