I am the proud new owner of a 72 Starflyte. I've got the fresh water system going, but my Owens Pedalmatic is leaking from its innards. How hard is it to pull and replace? And will a new toilet fit the old shower pan/flange? Should I try to save the old toilet (it looks like that would be tough) to keep value, or do you just let it go because it's old and icky?

I am having the same issue. Mine is a cool original with the pedal (dont know name, have to look), and I really want to take it out and see if we can save it/repair it. (BLEACH?? BLEACH?? BLEACH??)...funny tho the seat is so small, and not that my booty is big (well, bigger than this micro seat), wondering if it will all be funtional and moderately comfy, or do I just get a new one. I would love to see the responses here. Good luck and congrats on your new Starflyte!
Big wheels keep on turnin...carryin me home to see my kin...Singin songs about the southland, I miss Alabamy once again, and I think it's a sin, yes.........

We gave up trying to repair the original gold Owens Pedalmatic II toilet. We still have the original manual if anyone wants it. We bought a Dometic 310 but found out it was too long. It was to far forward. Now we are planning to put in a Thetford Aqua Magic V because it is 2 inches shorter. Any better ideas?
I have an extra toilet out of a 68 Starflyte. It's got the little plastic tank on the back. If anybody wants it...
Aqua Magic Vs are NASTY. They do not have a solid tube from the toilet bowl to the floor flange, thus allowing "debris" to splash inside the toilet body. ewww. Take a look at any other model and be sure the waste tube is there...

You were right about the Aqua Magic V it is a sloppy gross mess inside. My space is so small this was the only one I have been able to find that would fit so I bought one to hold me over but now I am trying to find a vintage one that works to replace it.
