On almost all Kohler toilets (there are a few exceptions) the arms of the flapper are just hooked over the posts at the base of the flush valve. You just pull the old ones off and pop the new ones over the posts. There should be 1 or 2 links of slack in the chain once you have the new flapper in place.
Yes one on each side of the pipe you'll note I said posts. Don't worry about the terminology I understand what you're saying but I'm not entirely clear on what you're seeing on the toilet since those arms should pull off the posts on the side of the pipe very easily. I wonder if some modifications were made. Can you post a picture here? Click on ADD FILES next to the SEND button to post a picture here.
I know what the replacement part looks like. Your description of what's in the toilet doesn't sound right/original. Like I said before removing the flapper and installing a new one should be real easy on and off
That's why I asked for a picture of what's in the toilet now
