Turn off the water to the fixture.

Flush the toilet and hold the handle down to let as much water out of the tank as possible.

Sponge the rest of the water out so the tank is dry.

Remove or undo the water supply tube from the fill valve.

Remove the three bolts holding the tank to the bowl and remove the tank.

Replace the old seal with the new one and reverse the whole process.

You should be good to go.

Good luck.

Inside the tank it has a gasket from the stand pipe to the bottom of the tank. The stand pipe threads go through the tank and a plastic nut holds it to the tank. Then a gasket goes on the nut and threads to make a seal between the tank and bowl. I have included this picture that has the above look. I hope this will be of some help for you.

can't tell you the part number but it's not to complicated. first shut off the water supply, then flush the toilet to get the water out of the tank, then remove the water supply line, then unbolt the tank from the bowl and replace the gasket. be carefull when tightening the tank back up, you want to do it evenly and only untill the tank is solid. or you can crack the tank

never have used a torque wrench to install toilet tanks. Put gasket on tank and insert bolts with rubbers washers through gasket and set tank on bowl in a level and straight postion and start nuts tightening them evenly until tank starts to snug to bowl. Hand tight is usually sufficient, you will see the rubber gasket and washers will compress to bowl and tank forming a seal (EVENLY) and tank will be firm to bowl. DO NOT superman torque these nuts! Compare the torque to finger strength on a wing nut. Hope this helps ,"if I understood the question."

Anything is possible, you could look to see if the fuel tank appears newer then the rest of the under body, however a new fuel tank is not such a bad thing, if it were installed properly...

First, identify the style of your quick connect hose.

See the steps on this Kohler Fawcet Link for disconnecting your pull-out kitchen faucet quick connect hose. Follow this link: https://support.kohler.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001798834-Disconnect-Quick-Connect-Pull-Out-Kitchen-Faucet-Hoses

Make sure the water valves are closed and the water pressure is relieved before attempting to service your kitchen taps.

The brand of toilet doesn't matter. You need a product that cuts calcium and lime. It may take some soaking and scrubbing. Once you get it clean, use the product regularly.

CLR makes a line of products:

I don't know this specific tub, but here's the pictoral. The button (90105) should come out of its base, held by friction of O ring. This should allow you to disconnect the pressure line. If you are looking to replace the complete assembly, likely you will need a basin wrench to reach nut (65157).

you have kids??? theres probably something large in the trap

Smart-a$$ answer is to find an old 3 gallon pot in a salvage place. Best answer is to fiddle with the chain that goes from the handle to the flush flapper and see if adjusting its length makes a difference. If it's too short it might result in letting the flapper closing too soon and allowing your deposit to remain.

There's something blocking it sometimes if you turn the water off in your home and turn it back on sometimes calcium from the pipes break loose and cause blockage in new style washerless valve assemblies.
