old bend-pipe toilet

Of course, the wrong terminlogy but an old Richmond toilet with a metal angle pipe in back and the water closet sitting on top.
I've been unfortunate enough to have to pull it up to get to the sewer line. Now that I've put it back, it leaks (as expected). Its leaking from both ends of the angle pipe- the top of the where it meets the tank, and where it meets the bowl.

What I'm wondering is if there is any kind of stop leak spray you can spray on the angle pipe and around the large nuts connecting to the bowl and water tank, or even in the tank around the flange, to get this by until the next time it has to come up. At that point, I'll buy a new toilet, OK?

Its just been a huge ordeal getting it back on the wall, and I'd like to not bail at this point. Plus any new toilet will not fit the floor spot and may not even reach from the sewer pipe to the wall, old as this building is.
Since its not under house water pressure and a drain, surely some kind of spray seal would be possible, anyone??
