SeaLand gasket


I am in the final stages of replacing the black tank and toilet in a 1966 Overlander. It appears I tightened the toilet bolts too tight and forced the gasket off the flange. What is the proper procedure for tightening the bolts to get a good seal? I am using a SeaLand toilet with a Thetford riser.

Hello John Greenlee,

they tighten down snug ,not real tite ,as the closet flange ,(black plastic fitting) is plastic and can get crack at the bolt area .I installed a sealand in our trdwnd 1960 ,and had no issue there .I just snug it down equally ,it is not loose and all went ok.Is the seal the right one? as it sounds like that might be
why it squeezed out ,it could be too thick.Generally when the commode is tightened down that's it . check for the right seal .
