Leaking toilet - with new flapper and flush valve

I got a Kohler two piece (Highline?) toilet that I recently noticed was running. I replaced the flapper (Korky). I replaced the whole flush valve assembly (I thought I ordered a Kohler OEM part but I got Flushmaster). The second replacement included a new washer and new gaskets both below the tank and inside the tank below/around the flush valve. Yet somehow the toilet is still leaking. I turned off the water and left it overnight; the tank was dry the next day so the leak is below the flapper level.

How do I stop the leaking?
Thanks,

Remove the tank from the toilet and replace the entire overflow valve and flapper as a unit.

Yup. Did that. That was the second thing I did. The tank was completely dry this morning so the leak is around the base of the flush valve.

Yeah. I'm going to redo it all with some silicone gasket maker to help seal things in. That and sand the surface to make sure it's clean and smooth around the hole.
