I have a very old toilet, could be around 80 years old. It needs to be replaced but I cannot
find a new toilet that has the same offset from the wall. The only real problem with the toilet
is the mechanism inside has deteriorated to the point where the parts have disappeared,
the black rubber ball is completely rotted through, and the brass linkages have totally worn out.
I tried replacing the parts with new components from the local hardware store, but the new black
rubber ball does not seal of the opening completely, so the water is constantly running.
Can anyone help me find either new replacement parts that fit an old toilet or a new toilet that will
fit the same 4 hole floor bolt pattern and offset distance from the wall?
