Thanks Steve for the pictures and the information. What Ronco black tank did you use? The one in your picture looks a bit larger than what I was thinking. I spoke with Sheila at Ronco today, and she was very helpful. Thanks for the tip. On your black tank did you use a 3" threaded fitting for the toilet?

The tanks were 17H .The deep end hangs 3" below the frame so the BP will need to be modified in the areas of the two tanks.Look at an 18H it's only 15 gallons,these are 25's.Look on the site and you will find something that will be close.

Gray Tank Installed, New Subfloor Next

Steve,
Looks like I am about 6 months behind you on my restore. The gray tank install was as easy as you said. How comes the subfloor. What kind of elevator bolts did you end up using and how many? I noticed that you did not remove the shell, how did you get the plywood sections in one piece? Thanks for the help again, Maurice

I used the long ones from VTS get about 3 or 4 bags.I first got some sheets of 1/4 in Luan 4x8(about 6 bucks each.Measure a template and they are flexible enoungh to bend in.When I got them perfect I cut from 3/4 ply the sections.I used a 4x4 and an automotive floor jack on the ribs and the frame just ahead of myself.As you fit drop in left side and as the rt. goes in the skin will flex out.Tap in long ways with a 2x4 and a 5lb. sledge.Put a ratchet type tydown on both sides of the channel(after all sections are in) and pull the channels back in.Put in the channel screws .Get a forcshner bit and countersink the holes for the E Bolts.When all is tightened fill the bolt tops with epoxy and sand down so bolts are flush.
Have some pics of the Jack on "Gutting the 65" thread. Steve
