With the new valve assembly firmly seated in position, the next step is to attach the lift chain:
  • Make sure the tank ball is closed.
  • Make sure the toilet flush lever is down.
  • Connect the chain attachment clip to the hole in the flush lever.
  • Connect the clip to the proper plastic chain link so as to provide a slight slack in the chain.
  • Trim unneeded chain links leaving a few extra hanging from the attachment clip.
