There is a slow seep of water into the toilet
It's definitely coming through the flapper valve. Look for some interference or crud that prevents the flapper from sealing well. Does it happen intermittently, or constantly? If you can't find the interference try a different style of flapper valve.
I need to change the
You have to twist the whole thing. There is no nut or threaded portion under the gasket like you'd find on most (two-piece toilets). The hole under the gasket seal is a triangle-shaped and the bottom of the flush valve (the part that says waterline) has three prongs that lock the unit down against the gasket. I don't remember which direction worked, but I put the grip/handle of a channel lock pliers down into the flush valve and that gave me the leverage to remove the whole part with gasket.
What is a flush cylinder
It is really the valve that opens up to let water flow through the bowl when activated by the flush lever, to flush the toilet. it should prohibit water from flowing after the toilet flushes.
The two bolts that holds
a lots of the time when that happens you will need to use a grinder or a ' Dremil ' tool to cut the bolts that are holding down the toilet and get some new bolts and re-install. **** there is also a chance that if you CAN turn the bolt itself from the top that you can get the bottom of the bolt ( which is ' T ' shaped ) to turn in the right direction and get the bolt head to slip through the slots in the floor plate. since you will most likely need new bolts to re-install the toilet, go buy the new bolts at the hardware store and by looking at the bolts and looking at a floor plate at the store -- this will give you a idea of what you are trying to remove.. ( it is kinda like a puzzle ). ******
also --- sometimes you can get a hacksaw blade ( by itself -- not on handle ) to fit between the floor and toilet and cut the bolts that way,, this is kinda a pain to do, but in a pinch it sometimes works good.
I hope these ideas help you --- good luck ( ! ).
