I tried to wipe the resin free from the threads of the inlet. However, in the end some did get in. I hope I can chip it out.

Here is the finished product waiting the 90 minutes to cure. It wasn't too difficult after all. Now I have fitting that the toilets closet flange will screw down into.

Here is a shot of the completed slip fitting for the vent pipe that I will have to add.

This part of the tank ended up inside the vanity so I should be able to attach a pipe to it there, run it behind the toilet and up the curbside closet.

The original vent is a deteriorated rubber pipe that runs up in the wall. I'm afraid trying to adapt to keep using that will be a waste of effort. I will also have to add a vent on the street side for the grey tank since one never existed.

Ambassador Tim ~

The shot in post #31 doesn't look like a slip fitting for the vent pipe to me unless you're planning on a very wide vent pipe.

Fine work Tim. You just may get this on the road yet.

Thanks guys.

Well Brad, you got me there. I don't know a slip fitting from a ham sandwich. I just hope my wife puts the right one on the plate

I thought that is what it was called. The flange part that I glassed to the tank had a part that look like it could hold a gasket to be sandwitched to another flanged peice like maybe to a valve.

Anyway, my hope is to be able to pvc glue a pipe inside of it to run up and out the roof.

Maybe I'm all screwed up on my terminology. The vent pipe on my tank is a 1 1/2" or 1 3/4" size for venting. Maybe I've been eating slip fittings when all along I thought it was ham sandwiches.
