Default WTB Drive reservoir

Does anyone have a decent slightly used stock take off bravo 1 drive reservoir they want to sell? I know that someone took one off and has it laying around and replace it with one of those fancy bling-bling ones. Thanks.

It's like $40 for a new one at the marine store. Updated design, too, doesn't crack and leak anymore.

If it is a single bolt plastic unit, the merc part is discontinued. I just replaced mine a with a new Volvo unit. Same thing. It was $25.00 at the local marina. To do the upgrade, merc makes you buy a whole new motor assembly at about $350!

A whole new motor assembly? No motor involved in the drive resevoir, it's a plastic bottle, a metal bracket with a rubber strap, and a sensor at the bottom. The merc version cost me under $40 at the local boat place, and they're overpriced.

If you're talking about the trim resevoir, I just wipe up the drips every time i get in the bilge.

Oops, yes I was talking about the trim reservoir I didn't read it very carefully! I couldn't wipe any drips cause mine came out like gangbusters when getting on plane. It made a BIG mess!
