American Standard toilet flush valve. I have a new plunger valve (the
valve that regulates the flow of water into the tank.) It came with a
new seat that installs with an allen wrench but I can't get the old
seat out. It has a round inside so an allen wrench won't work to

it out will the new one screw in? Thanks.
Replace it with a FluidMaster (code approved model) for about $8 and your
problems will be solved.
The replacement washers are a snap to install with no tools for $1-2 each
depending on where you buy them.

this one and not send it to landfill.
