YEs it is similar to this one! Not sure why but even following the directions for posting pictures- it dosen't give me the option... maybe because I am a new member.

Any advice on how to fix this flapper, it is similar to this one but not the same exact one.

That is called a Mansfield flush valve

You need to go to your local plumbing supply house, Not Home Depot

This is a YouTube video I found that tells you how to repair it.

I have worked on several, just replace the entire unit.

Buy the fliud master kit for 20 bucks and replace everything. Those Mansfields have proven themselves to be horrible toilets. Their guts are terrible as the design of their poorly flushing toilets. Your best bet is to go buy a Gerber Viper and be done with ever messing with this toilet again
