I removed all the guts of the thing, flapper and all and made a patch using the same screw holes that were already there. The flapper was the leaker. Need a scoop and maybe a flapper inside that. May put it back when I have time to mess with it.

The patch is flat at the top and round at the bottom to follow the existing screw holes. You should be able to use the vent hardware to reproduce the hole pattern.

Yes - I did it this morning. It was easy after reading your description of it. As a bonus we also had a pretty good rain tonight so I had the chance to test it out and...no leaks!

Thanks again!
