1964 Ambassador sewer line connector

Does anyone know where I can pick up a new 90° sewer line adapter?

I was told it's not standard and would like to replace this!

Our 62 Safari has the old black valve with the non standard attachment.
And I manage to lose the traval cap sometimes referred to as a frying pan cap!

I was able to re-make one from some heavy gage copper and used silver solider to weld it together.
There are theads on the subject of replacing the old black tank valve and the nonstandard hookup.
I will save that upgrade for latter as need be.

So no one sells these? That seems weird in this day and age!

Progress has left some of us without, and that's the price of Vintage!
My original 90 elbow is cast alum. and I added or adapted the discharge end with the new standard mounting with a hose clamp and a black hose repair fitting.

I will take a pic if you want.
This is how I worked around the the old to new connection.
I am not aware of anyone selling these old parts.
Let me know if you have any luck!

There are two main types of attaching standards: Thetford (who has been doing this since the Year Gimmel) and I forget the other one. I am sure someone will rush in to add the name. Parts and adapters between the two types abound.

If you have one that is neither of those, congratulations, you may have discovered the Lost Ark.

Seriously, if the connector you want to replace is original, it is Very likely a Thetford connector. Airstream used those for a loooong time. My '74 Sov uses Thetford, but brand new ones don't, so they changed over somewhere in that 40 year slot.

Look for Thetford parts at any established RV parts and repair place. If they don't know what Thetford plumbing connectors are, RUN out of the shop.

Good luck!

[Edit:] The other type is Valterra

you can easily find a converter to make use of the newer style connections. I got mine at Camping World

I think you wanted the elbow with the old style fittings?
That was prior to valterra or thetford Styles.

I would appreciate it if someone could post a clear closeup photo of this mysterious old style fitting.

Don't forget that many cameras have a 'macro' button for that. It has a picture of a flower on the button.

Cell phones don't, so closeups are not always possible with them.
