Hello, Jason here. Whom am I speaking with? That sounds about right. Did you have any questions for me. Did you need part numbers or anything?

Good morning. Just checking in. I noticed no rating has been put through yet. Did you have any further questions on the issue? - Jason

Thx Jason I ordered a new reservoir just to be on the safe side
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
You might want to think about getting a new cap as well. The reservoirs come bare, with no cap. So if the threads are mucked up it's typically best to replace the tank and cap as a new matched set. Does that make sense?

Good morning. I noticed no rating has been put through yet so i'm just checking in to see how you were making out. Any progress, or did you still have more questions on this?
Thanks,
