American Standard toilet leak.

I have a 2-piece American Standard toilet that is about 25 years old. It is in very good condition but it is leaking water at the point where the overflow valve meets the tank seal. The overflow is a plastic cylinder about 1-1/2 in. in dia. with a rubber gasket meets the tank seal. It rides on a metal 1/4 in rod. About every 15-20 minutes the Fluitmaster 400 starts refilling for about 3-4 seconds. I don't think I can replace with a fluidmaster flapper type because if I take out the fill cylinder that is there now there would be no way to connect the flapper. Any ideas that might help?

Take the plunger assembly out, but sliding it up off of the rod... The top plate on the rod should unscrew to allow it to come off... Take it with you to a supply house and they will have the replacement...
