Toilet needs fixing - Have parts but what goes where?


I need to fix the toilet and I have the parts for it. My problem is I don't know what part goes where. A friend gave me this set of parts in a plastic bag but no instructions were included. I can't see underneath the toilet it's a European type I think (Incepa). I have never done this before but I'm sure I could do it if someone could just tell me where these parts go - the 4 loose ones.. inside the tank or outside... which one first...... thanks!

The big nut with the wings is incase your replacing the water connection. The big flat on one side nut is what actually holds the flow valve in the tank. The two rubber things are for different water supply connections.

That's a really cheap flush valve I would not even bother installing it.
Get yourself a new Fluid Master for about $10.00.

The flat one with the four holes threads up onto the flush valve after you stick it through the hole inside the tank.

If you buy a stainless braided toilet supply, you don't need the others. If your flush valve is old enough to need to be replaced, do yourself a favor and replace the supply tube with a stainless braided one.

I assume you know that the float ball is needed on the end of the brass rod, and the rubber tube adjacent to the rod clips to the inside of the overflow tube with a little S clip. Right?

Well the flush valve broke and is no longer holding the float ball so I have to tighten and untighten the screw every time.. or the water runs constantly and it's driving me crazy!
So you say a stainless braided supply tube is better OK noted! I want to change to valve anyway so may as well do that at the same time right? There's one already (with a screw in the middle) but it leaks when I open it up so I will change it with another type (1/4 turn) I find those more reliable. The old one I put in 14 years ago already.
Not quite sure if I need the S clip since this model has a hole to put the tube in. I'll try to tackle this project this week sometime.
Sorry if I don't have the right terms but you got it right?
THANK YOU! Girly_girl
