Back to wall toilet flush handle problem

I have a back to wall toilet that won't flush properly because the metal bar that goes from the toilet handle and through the wall onto which the cistern pully thing the connected isn't long enough. It doesn't pull up straight when flushed because of this and tends to get stuck.

Does anyone know if I can buy a longer handle bar. The one I have is 17cm and seems to be the longest available.

Many thanks in advance.

    if you have trouble getting a longer one try any small engineering company. they should be able to find/make you one to suit.
    Get some gorm.

    They are available quite pricey but at least you know they are out there. As said try a local merchant.

    Ask to see CIPHE (Chartered Institute of Plumbing & Heating Engineering)
