Default Toilet Repair..?

So I have a 1978 class and it seems that the toilet is loose on it's stand so that the gasket between the bowel and the tank slips allowing water to seep out into the camper...

I cannot figure out how to access the mechanism....there are 2 big lag screws attaching the toilet seat to the toilet, they seem to be the only visible attachments points.....

again, if i hold the toilet and gently wrench it it will move slightly from side to side....i assume that i need to reattach the toilet....but how...?


I believe it is a "Classic" brand toilet?

there is a rubber gasket (like a mason jar ring) between toilet and floor. maybe the toilet is stuck to the ring and floor

OK!! Well, I got the toilet out, there are 2 access panels on each side of the toilet, and peering inside I saw the 2 studs and nuts.....removed the nuts, the toilet is free, I removed the water feed and took the toilet out! There is a 35 year old rubber gasket that I removed, and am well on my way towards fixing......so.....thanks!!!
