I replaced the valve body and flapper already, so not much to do. Leaning toward new toilet but already got the part.

Drywall fixing next, then sanding, painting, underlayment, sheet vinyl, trimming out, and so on...... Ambition levels currently low. Maybe after more coffee.

Just one other thing that I've seen is when the little hose that refills the bowl ( the hose that sticks into the overflow) is just stuck down in there will slowly siphon water through the ballcock if it's end is below the water level of the filled tank. It drove me nuts until I used the adapter that comes with the ballcock. Sounds weird but that is what it was.

most likely the problem is the shutoff isnt....meaning when the float operated valve is supposed to stop the flow of water it has a slow leak - similar to a faucet that wont turn off. this allows water to steadily seep in until it reaches the level of the overflow tube and you start hearing the constant trickle at the same rate as the valve leaks. whe you flush the toilet it takes a little while to accumulate enough water to once again reach the overflow tube level.

Hope this helps
