I recently purchased a 1961
International Overlander. It currently has the old galvanized (torpedo sized tank) under the twin bed. It is my understanding in order to use the whole water system you need to fill the tank and then pressurize it with an air hose and or use the onboard pump.
Has anyone out there converted this type system to one that can be hooked up to city water and bypass the holding tank?
I would hate to think I had to haul a tank of that size with any amount of water down the road.
I know that the later models had a bypass system that you could fill the tank and use pump, or pressurize the plumbing using city hook up.
I would like to jettison the torpedo tank and replace with a smaller lighter more efficient poly tank and a pump with a pressure switch like the later models. (On demand System)
Any help and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
