Although it looks like whoever owns this one came up with a new idea for the top of the toilet.
Before I pull all of this apart, I want to know that i can get any of the gaskets or seals or whatever it will take to make sure that it wont leak.
Do you know how i can identify what toilet this is ? I know it came from the factory, but im guessing they bought it from somebody.
If the toilet has a porcelain bowl rather than plastic, my strong suspicion would be Saniware. It is my understanding that Saniware either went out of business or was absorbed by one of the other manufacturers and has not been around for a number of years. Saniware specifice parts may be very difficult to find, but base gaskets and standard O-rings should be relatively easy to find. The link below is to a copy of a period Saniware toilets owners' guide that might assist in identification:
Mansfield was another possible supplier, but would likely have been used during a time period before the 1960s:
The Thetford Aquamagic Galaxy was often found in later Airstreams, and one was modified to fit in my '64 Overlander -- not entirely satisfactory, but it has worked thus far:
If you don't mind waiting for the download, the link below is to a pdf file that includes the 1965 Caravel
manual -- it may have information regarding what toilet would have been original equipment:
There should be some form of manufacturer's identification on the toilet -- often there is a trademark on the flush pedal -- or there may be a tag that would be visible from the one-stop-service compartment if your Caravel
happen to have one.
Good luck with your investigation!
