    same link as above but with a brass tail, no chance of cross threading and better in my opinion

    depending on space but one should fit

    IMPORTANT:

    if you change the inlet valve,be careful you dont cross thread it,get yourself a new swivel washer to connect on,before removing the valve,isolate the supply and flush the toilet,some water will remain in the cistern,use a sponge to get it out,this way avoids making a mess
    fear keeps you alive
    fearless gets you killed

    I have a banning hammer and I am not afraid to use it
