I have an American "Standard" K54 foilet from 1954. Perhaps 18 years ago
I installed a Fluidmaster Flusher Fixer kit. Worked fine, for a long time.
Still works fine, but it needs a replacement flapper. I search everywhere,
can't find one. Call Fluidmaster, wait 20+ min., nobody home.
Fluidmaster has a "New, Improved" Flusher Fixer kit. Totally unlike the
old. I go to Homey-Flogging-Depot, that's all they got. Damned thang
looks like a Rube Goldberg Frankenstein.
Fluidmaster doesn't support replacement parts for it's products. Howcum
we don't have a reliable and dependable toilet fixtures company??
"The monkey and the baboon was playing 7-up.
The monkey won the money but he scared to pick it up.
The monkey stumbled, mama.
The baboon fell.
The monkey grab the money and he run like hell!"
