If it were me, I'd hook up a water line one at a time to the 3 connections. I'd start with the brass elbow at the bottom, and make sure the other two hoses are going to a bucket before supplying water pressure. Any idea where the other end of the two hoses go? It looks like the one on the right goes to the bottom of the bowl. The one on the left has a gizmo thing on it - does that come apart? Could be a check valve, or maybe a small filter.

That gizmo seems to be an old thetford filter. I can't tell much more, but your idea is a good one. Waiting in my supply line to get here then I will start being a hooker. Hooking up I mean. ...or should I say attaching.

I would guess that the water supply would only be connected to one of the lines. One of the other lines would be the water going to the bowl and the sprayer and would be controlled by the foot operated valve. The third line looks like the line to the bowl.

I hooked up a temporary line to the brass fitting, and routed the other two plastic ones to each other. The toilet barely dribbled water as my connection was poor, but when I stepped on the flush foot valve the water went thru the plastic lines. Still not sure what to connect these to, I think since they both went to an external filter, they are an out and a return. Once I find the right pex valve for the brass inflow line I will try it again.

I got it now. Connected the brass inlet ( flair) with a flair to pex fitting. Connected the two plastic hoses to eachother with a clear plastic hose and clamps. Works like a charm. I lubed up all the toilet mechanism and my wife made a new cover for the box on top. It is looking great now...PEX is almost finished.
I painted the sink with Krylon and it looks pretty good, clear coated it too.The new faucet was an Ebay item,$9.99!

Alan,

Looks good. Did you remove the sink from the wall to paint it do did you tape off the surrounding area?

Thanks,

I used blue masking tape and paper all around it. Worked well. Did three coats and then two of clear. I did get a small spot or two of little fish eyes looking circles. I sanded before hand but must have missed a small space. No one has really noticed them so I guess it's ok.
We will see how the Krylon holds up.
