Repairing a toilet flush handle

If you have an Ideal Standard toilet it is not easy to get a new flush handle. It’s often the plastic bush inside the tank that breaks making the handle go floppy. The standard size for the bush is 1/2 inch but Ideal Standard toilets have a 3/8 bush. The only place I could find a replacement with both sizes was Toolstation.
