    Spending the night at Sunsation32's house tonight

    so I am on his puter.

    The reason I machined the bottle was because it wasn't perfectly flat. I was afraid when I attached the fitting to the bottom of the jug it would crack like all of the merc bottles do.
    It's been too many years ago and I can't remember if I had to machine out an alum. part to put in the bottle. Sorry brain cells ain't what they use to be. My old boat was a 1988 24 foot Carrera. It didn't have the alarm set up in the bottle. I am pretty sure I machined a part for the bottle.

    old post same problem,, leaking reservoirs for my outdrives,, I ordered 2 bottles $12.38 each . total shipped 29.01 anyway I was expecting something close to the original... well I received them today and heres the scoop...
    THESE ARE THE SAME BOTTLES ,, the lid was EXACTLY the same I was able to use mine with the vent already installed. When I took apart the merc bottle,,,, the bottom of the bottle had been machined flat in the center inside and out. had a 5/8 hole thru. I have the bottles w/o the low oil sensor ,, so the fitting on the bottom of mine is hex aluminum with an o ring already on it for the seal and just a thin nut goes on the inside of the bottle... Oh the one thing this bottle DOESN'T have,,,,,, the $50 sticker that has an oil level mark.......

    i'll post an update on how I machine the bottom...
