There might be one other possibility. Your SaniWare is an earlier version but the pink porcelain bowl along with the pink seat may be interchangeable with the later SaniWare such as the ones listed in the PDF manual in one of the posts above. Parts for that version may be available. It might just work out so you can keep your cool pink commode.

Toilet part

I need help locating a part for my toilet. This is the original toilet from my 1968 26' Overlander International.The plastic (or maybe Teflon) valve which is activated when you depress of the smaller of the two foot pedals (the one that send water into the bowl) is cracked. I tried to repair the valve be covering the hairline crack with epoxy, but that did not work. Everything on this toilet works except for this valve. can somebody help me to find a replacement part.

I can't see what kind of toilet you have from your picks. This site may help. Scroll down to toilets. marksrv.com site index

That valve came from Thetford model 1800 toilet.

Parts for it vanished many years ago.

Perhaps someone may have a "take-off."

68-Ovrlndr,
That part is most decidedly not a Teflon based material product, IMHO.
When I was working at the NASA's Langley Research Center, in the late 60's, we were just seeing Teflon tape usage in the Rocket Test Tunnel..
I rather doubt very much then, that Airstream was that much more advance than NASA...
Consider this thought,
Any similar replacement part that you find "used" from another toilet will eventually have the same failure.
If it were me, I would just bite the bullet and, get a new toilet.
"Just imagine what a new throne would feels like"...
ciao

Thanks! It may be too late as I believe the new toilet has already been ordered and the pink one has been promised to a friend who plans on "restoring" it!

Maybe you could give him the new one and get the "restored" one back in exchanged??? That would work..

Thanks for all y'alls help. I found a NOS part for my toilet on eBay. It never ceases to amaze me the most obscure stuff you can find on eBay. Any ways the part fit just right and my toilet now works perfectly. All for only ~$20. much better than the cost of retrofitting a new ~$150 newer toilet.
Thanks again,
Dan

Yes, but where and how?! I'd still love to salvage it and I'm going to have to know REALLY soon before they install the new one!

Unfortunatley for you, 68-Ovrlndr is talking about a completely different toilet.
