Did you install a completely new tank to bowl kit as showen in this picture?

Don't use silicone.

Follow what I say and it will be leak free.

Take it all apart,

Bolt assebly order, how I do it, and garanteed not to leak.

Bolt > Rubber Washer > Slip Into Tank Hole > Rubber Washer > Metal Washer > Nut > Tighten It.

Do the same for both side, this step is done before you mount the tank to the bowl.

Now slip the large sponge gasket onto the bottom of the flush valve.

Set tank onto bowl, not use the last nuts and washers and snug the tank down. Do Not Overtighten

Last instruction was meant to say NOW USE THE LAST NUTS AND WASHERS AND SNUG THE TANK DOWN.

Sometimes the fingers the the wrong keys.

Thank you ror the advise. Used fender washers to keep from pinching the felt? washers, found that after I took it back apart. NO leaks now.
