Charlie,its easy as can be.
take the lid off,unhook the wires,remove the two philps screws and the small line off the side,then unscrew the main water line,lift everything out and rebuild it on the kitchen counter,i think a philips screwdriver is all you need.

Randy,
Where the plastic hopper attaches to the china horn did yours have the adapter glued on so you could use the O rings. Mine does not have the adapter. Looks like some sort of gray sealant used to seal it to the bowl

OK, I removed the hopper, disassembled and replaced the flapper, in the kit is a "O" ring to seal the hopper to the bowl but only if the adapter has been installed. So its either order the adapter or use caulking.

Update,
The toilet rebuild is complete. I ended up using plumbers putty to seal between the china horn and the plastic hopper, time will tell, no leaks while testing. Attached picture shows toilet in the quality control/test center. Off to Lowes for a new wax seal

Cam & microswitch adjustment. If cam is cracked correct adjustment may not be possible.
Mine began to double flush last year. I could not get proper adjustment to remedy problem until I removed the microswitch and slightly elongated the very small mounting holes. (.010 - .015 was all it needed). A little difficult dealing with the small hardware. I lost one of the nuts - Made 2 new ones with extended stem from nylon rod. much easier to reinstall. Working fine ever since.

KC-
Thanks for the response. Had no idea I was looking at that fine an adjustment! This one too started with a double flush but quickly progressed to multiple flushes. Since I need the use of it, I installed a switch to shut off the main power after one flush (pic attached). It's appropriately mounted on an empty box of dog s__t bags. Interestingly, when I interrupt the power at the end of the first flush, when I turn the power back on, it doesn't continue to cycle. I would have thought that a cracked cam or misadjusted switch would continue to flush when I turn the power back on.
