Went on line found the part on the home depot web site. Had is order and shipped to the home depot store we shop at in just a few minutes. Received a email and text that the part was in. My lovely wife stopped by picked it up and before I could get home had already had the old part off and the new one installed and working like new.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Replaced Blue Ring and Still 'Ghost Flushes' [FIXED]
Make sure the tiny letter faces up (i.e. not down on the sealing surface).
I replaced the blue ring and still had 'ghost flushes'. I was about to replace the entire valve assembly and I took it apart to examine it and noticed the number "3" imprinted in the rubber right on the sealing surface. I flipped the gasket and it resolved the problem.
I checked the origional and it had the same problem (number imprinted on the sealing surface area of the gasket), guess it took 18 months before the rubber wasn't soft enough and the number "8" caused the leak. This is a part fabrication defect by design of the location, such a small detail with such a big problem as a result.
After the fix, good as new!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BuffaloTom Call American Standard and save $6
Call the company and tell them you bought the toilet within 10 years. They'll ask for your phone number to see if it's "on record." Then, they'll place you on hold and then tell you as a "courtesy" they'll ship you the seal at no charge. This worthless company should be bending over backwards to replace these inferior and defective parts.
When I bought the Champion toilet, the HD guy alluded to the fact that it had "problems." I should have listened.
I will never again buy an American Standard product. This includes the Eljer line of toilets and Fluent line of kitchen faucets. The Champion toilet failed within 3 years. They had a class-action lawsuit because of it.
My Toto and Kohler toilets are 10 and 15 years old, with no problems.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Workaround Easy Valve Seal Fix
After about 3 years of use, the flush valve seal started to leak - at first very slowly, then more rapidly as evidenced by the fill valve cycling. Upon removing the seal, I found a small bump on the back side of it - about 5/16" across and 1/16" high - the front (sealing side) was only slightly raised. It felt "funny" so I poked it with a needle and a couple of drops of water squirted out. I squeezed out all the water out and reinstalled it. It now seals perfectly. I ordered a new one, but won't install it unless the old one starts to leak again. The commode is the best flushing low water consumption commode I have ever seen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by billt Should be in in store item
Home Depot sells the American Standard Champion 4 toilet, but does not carry replacement parts in store. Had to wait for an on line order to arrive at store when I should have been able to pick it up in the store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by winch Good solution to a leaky flush valve
The seal fit perfectly and has worked perfectly since I installed it. It may not have been necessary if American Standard had made it more obvious that these seals can be damaged by using chemicals in your toilet tank. We added a product to "keep the bowl clean with every flush" only to find that the seal developed blisters and leaked. I guess we'll just have to keep the bowl clean the old fashioned way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glockster Stopped the leak!!
This Seal kit fixed the leak problem. Was considering replacing the entire toilet until I discovered that this "seal kit" could stop the leak.
