Plumbing was the project today. The Townsend toilet in the 66 Caravel
is out while I change the "Gold Plated" black water tank newly recieved from InlandRV. First of all I see a chipped and repaired corner at the bolt down point. Previous owner obviously gave it one more pull on the wrench just to be sure. Next was the drain valve on the fill tube, at the rear, was cracked at the base and would have been great fun the first time water was turned on. And the next problem materialized when , after cleaning the base and seal area...removing all the broken and rotted seal parts, I checked on the Vintage Airstream Homepage where I remembered seeing some info on the Townsend, ....the seal is not to be found and sources are sought.
So tomorrow AM I am off on the search. Any info on sources or replacements would be appreciated.
