Toiler Shut Off Valve
 
water contues to run in toilet even though shut off valve is off?/ replaced the Fludmaster Fill valve which was leaking but wonder if the shut off valve needs to be replaced and how difficult is that?

Your question is confusing. How did you replace the fill-valve if the shut-off valve doesn't shut the water off? The fill-valve, if adjusted properly, will stop water from entering the tank, even with the water supply valve turned on.

Depends on your setup. I just did this the other week with our toilet downstairs. New wax ring, bolts, stainless supply line, and 1/4 turn shutoff valve.

Now for mine, I simply had to remove the nut behind the shutoff valve and replace with the new shutoff valve.

I would hope yours is done similarly. The plumber was thinking ahead if it's just soddered.

I'm wondering if the OP is refering to the flush valve/flapper.
