1964 Globetrotter Help!

We have a 1964 Globetrotter. The Black Water holding tank, is leaking.
Does anyone know the process for removal/repair of the holding tank?
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks...Denny STone

The BT in the '64 Globetrotter is under the floor in the rear- I've been working on mind all weekend. I believe you have to removed the toilet and disconnect the vent pipe that comes out of the top of the tank, and remove the belly pan under the tank- mind is currently held in place by the pan... so I'm looking at how to access the tank myself.

We will actually be starting this project on our '64 GT this next week...first, we plan on dropping the belly pan and then developing an approach from there. Not sure if our tank needs to be replaced yet, but going to check things out. When we did our resto on this trailer 8-9 years ago, we never went to this extent. Now that Birdy is done, we are going back to work on Maxwell.

That looks like the same tank I have in my 1964 Avion. It's fiberglass with a cast iron ring glassed into the openings. On my tank The iron rings were rusted out and loose inside the tank. I cut them out and fiberglassed the correct spout fitting for the drain and a threaded fitting that a toilet flange would screw into on the top to allow some up and down adjustment. Both of the flanges that I glassed to the tank were ABS plastic. If the tank leaks somewhere else, just grind it down and lay a glass cloth patch with some resin on it and it's fixed.

I'm going to drop the belly pan under the tank and see what I see.

FWIW, The tank shown in the pics of the '65 GT is definitely not the same as the tank in a '64 GT. The '64 GT tank is in the center of the last frame section, below the floor and is basically a shallow rectangular shape. The '65 GT appears to be mounted above the floor in the corner.
