Is there a standard flush valve that will fit a Mansfield 160?
 
I have a Hydroright Dual Flush Converter that I'm trying to install into my Mansfield 160 toilet. To do this, I need to install a new flush valve, as the one that comes with the Mansfield 160 is centered over the hole in the tank, which is where the converter will sit.

The problem is, I cannot find a standard flush valve that will fit the Mansfield 160. I need one where the overflow tube is to the side (like most toilets, I believe). The ones that I've seen are all 3" in diameter, and the whole in the tank in my toilet is 2.5" (though somebody told me the Mansfield 160 needs one that's even smaller).

Can somebody recommend a way to find a standard flush valve that will fit this toilet? I've called 5 different plumbing supply stores, so I'm thinking I might just be out of luck, though I've read several things online suggesting that people "just replace the Mansfield flush valve with a standard valve".

Thank you.
