continue our conversation.If the linkage has become detached from the lever on the overflow plate and you can't reach into the overflow pipe and retrieve it (after removing the overflow plate) then the overflow pipe will need to be disassembled to retrieve the linkage so it can be reconnected. This assumes the linkage isn't actually broken in which case it would need to be replaced.
