Hello Gmalynda, don't know if I can be of any help because I completely gutted everything in my Bristol and filled up a 15 yard dumpster 3 times. I am near the end of a very long total re-fit but if you have any questions I can try.

Not familiar with Bristols but my experience is there are few manuals that are complete or accurate enough to rely on. The best bet is to start tracing hose & wiring and document your plumbing, sanitary and electrical systems.
Nigel Calders Book on marine mechanical & electrical systems is worth the investment.
We have a TF member "HeadMistress" that is our resident expert on sanitary systems. Her book is another one that should be on every boaters book shelf (or Kindle )
I was going to suggest Nigel Calder's book also. Worth the money.
