    Got caught out with this job today . No isolation valve , stoptap wouldnt shut off, had to take cistern off a 40 ish year old pan and replace syphon , easy job eh .
    Battled and put a Dudley on, new fill valve , handle etc etc.
    But the bleeding thing will not flush properly , its obviously a syphonic and doesnt like the new syphon .
    In the bottom of the old syphon is the “thing “ in the picture , its nact , covers a hole in the pan where the water enters .
    Never seen one before , can I block it up ? , any ideas how to get it working , or am I flogging a dead orse ?

    As usual , thanks in advance

    You remember the article on the Alladin easy fit iso valve?
    I brought one, found it a little pricey, bulky and heavy but it got me out a jam once.

    I've only seen one, in easy terms great for massive shits / loads much better than today's toilets

    If you mean the toilet, you can tell by looking at the pan side on. Brilliant idea and great flush as you will see in time, generally last for donkeys of years without fault.
    How old are you in Donkey years? ;)
