Is there a repair kit,such as a new handle section or seal?Any help would be greatly appreciated,Ray
Just rebuilt mine last week. I will put together a thread for how to do this soon for you. Yes there is a rebuild kit. Costs about $7X.XX bucks - or half the price of a whole new toilet. Still, easier to just rebuild and maybe better. Gaskets are fresh and new.

I cannot put the thread together rigth not. Got a conference call. Will help soon.
