After about 20 times of installing and uninstalling the toilet tank because of leaks. I finally decided to get wise and put the tank up where I could see it. Turns out it was a cracked tank. The crack would only open up once the tank was full of water. Very frustrating!
Here is the new tank all loaded up with the new hardware and ready to go. It’s only leaking where it is supposed to!
By the way. I do not care to make “plumber” my paid profession. I think I will keep my day job!
