Sorry.... Crane toilet tanks 18 years ago were 3.5 gal. flush tanks. All that is available today are 1.6 flush. Your old bowl will not flush with less water. It would be less costly to replace the whole toilet with a better toilet. The Kohler wellworth model is a great flushing 1.6 toilet. Now, If you want to replace the tank only, this is what you can do to get the full 3.5 flush. Purchase a new Crane 1.6 Galaxy model tank. You will have to change the Flush valve with a taller model. Fluidmaster make a replacement with a tall overflow tube #507A. Then replace the fill valve with a Fluidmaster 400A and raise the fill valve to a taller level. Instructions are on the box. Doing this will give you a new 3.5 tank. By the way the govt. doesn't want you to do this and this I didn't tell you...hehe. Keep in mind that you can't use another brand tank on your Crane bowl. It must be a Crane Galaxy tank. They should be available at most plumbing wholesale distributors. ***** also carries this line in many areas.

Toilet tank is cracked in back of tank. toilet is 55 yrs old and home warranty crack was not normal wear and tear. Is it true older toilets were made with some cement and can crack due to age?

It does not pay to get a tank even if one is available

One of the best is Gerber Avalanche very competitively priced same flapper as the Toto.

I have installed over 1,500 Gerber toilets without one call back I will NEVER sell, install or service a Kohler as the "bold look" does not mention quality

I also installed a lot of Crane toilets with no problems

The same thing happened to my toilet tank last year.
I bought the cheapest I could find at that time. Well, you get what you pay for. This time around i did some research so as not to waste my hard earned money. I went here
