'87 Excella gray water tank release t-handle?

Hi all-

Dad's 32' Excella had the t-handle and wire locks for it sheared off (what a great place to put this fragile equipment: right behind the wheels!!). The t-handle attaches to a bent piece of aluminum tubing that attaches to the actual pull valve with a rivet.

We put a bolt into the end of the aluminum tubing to keep it in the proper position, but are wondering if it is possible to get this mechanism new? It is still possible to pull the mechanism and "dump" the gray water, but it would be better for Dad with his bad knees to be able to have the t-handle back in place.

Any ideas/leads appreciated. Ben

I have contacted Inland RV and awaiting a response. I saw they have one pictured that looks right, but it is straight. Is this something I will have to bend, or will they have the correct alignment as well?

Thanks much! Ben

On my '86, the piece of metal that the straight t-handle slides into is also straight. Did yours get bent perhaps?
