Eljer Silette Toilet with china shroud.
I have a leaking 79E Ballcock valve. Am. Standard sent me a repair kit for 77E but that is different. Are repair parts available for the 79E ?
Or the entire 79E Ballcock available ?

I did a Google search on Silette toilets, and from what I gather from that, there are several generations of this model. The one you have with the china shroud, appears to be an older model and does require that 79E ballcock. Later models can use the 77E. You should be able to find a date of manufacture on the inside of the tank. That would perhaps help AS find the right repair/replacement for you. I would not to surprised if due to the age of your toilet that parts may no longer be available, but that will have to be determined. It does appear to be an attractive toilet, but due to the low flow requirements that have been in effect for a number of years, repair parts can be difficult to locate.
