  • From 1976 to 1982, for White, some date codes have an M, S or T such as M80.  These tanks are 1/4" wider. Hence, other tank lids will be too small and won't fit correctly. Do not order M, S, or T variation unless you are replacing M, S, or T.

These tanks are desirable for replacement on wall-mounted and rear-discharge models. If your toilet is floor-mounted, consider replacing the whole toilet. Cost of a new toilet.

  • I'm remounting an old American Standard 4049 wall mount (approx. 1967 vintage). Not sure what wall gasket/seal to use. It's 3 1/2 " inside diameter and 5 3/8 outside diameter. Can't seem to find a part number. Can you tell me what will work? Is there a generic brand that will fit? Thank you in advance. - Mike

    Good for you for checking! Wall-mount does require a different gasket. Contact our parts fulfillment affiliate.
