need advice on toilet tank guts

Hi all,

It has been a long time since I've been here. I'm back with a question that I just know some of you can answer for me.:)

I need to outfit two older toilet tanks with their insides. I do not want a fluidmaster in them. I want to go with the old style setup inside, but I'm not 100% certain of all the parts I will need. The 2 toilet tanks will be the wall mount style. These are not the high tank styles. They are regular height with the elbow between bowl and tank.

Here is what I know (I think:o) that I will need.....

Ballcock
Tank Trip Lever
Flush Valve
Copper Float Ball
Elbow
Spud & Spud Washer

Am I missing anything?

Pictures (or diagrams) are worth a thousand words (hint hint).:)

Thanks,
Sophie

I haven't seen a flush valve like that in years, good luck finding one.

Oh, I've already found one. Had my hands on it yesterday at Guidry's Hardware! :D They pretty much have everything I need there to do this.:)
