These used to very simple but have become more complex as technogy evolves. I will give you the standard answer though.
First shut the water supply off to the aplliance (there is a little decorative cover on the valve that is attached to the water line coming out of the wall. It looks like a nut. Pop this cover off and screw the screw in remember right is closed and left is opened.)
Now it is only a matter of unscrewing the couple of nuts that attach the actual valve.
Most valves come with step by step instructions but even without them it is usually a 30 minute job or less. You will need a flat head screw driver, spud wrench, tubing cutters- to cut the chrome trim tube to size, and some pipe thread compound or teflon tape.
Thanks for using Fix Ya and if I can be of further assistance let me know.

SOURCE: flapper will not go down
Troy, the flapper otherwise known as the flush valve is easily replaced. They are also very inexpensive. Sometimes they can become distorted due to the clorine in the water and won't operate in the same way they did when it was new. I bet this will fix your issue and save you money as well.

the chain should have some slack to it being too tight it dose let the flapper sit properly so itll keep running because water is escaping

You have installed the parts improperly. You must have 3/8 of an inch slack in the chain from the flapper to the handle when flapper is closed.

Kohler toilets normally have the part numbers on the underside of the the tank lid. I was not able to find the 703 model listed on the Kohler sites; check under the tank lid there for a more complete model number and possibly a specific number for your toilet flapper.
Here is a fairly user friendly site with an illustrated selection of Kohler replacement parts. You may be able to match your model number or measure and visually match a suitable replacement:
Your other option is to turn off the water supply to your toilet; remove the flapper and pay a visit to your local plumbing supply store. In some cases you will be able to use a universal repalcement part as long as the means of attachment and the size are the same.
