Post the model # from inside the tank. I'm sure it can be fixed, but sometimes it is less expensive to change the toilet out. Not to mention if this old guy wont take his friends sons advice , who is clearly looking out for his best interest. Then what makes you think he is going to be happy with the repair. This is probably a very old toilet from the sound of things. If I were you I would stand my ground, tell him the benefit of a low flow Toto drake or Kohler class 5. Chances are if they do make parts for this toilet , they are after market and very expensive. Not to mention they might not be machined or formed as well as the original parts were. Even entertaining the Idea of a repair could just be digging tho hole you are in deeper. If your dad and him are close freinds he should respect you for setting him strait. None the less post the model # from inside the tank/lid.
