W114 Brake Fluid Resevoir Compatibility

I was replacing my brake master cylinder and tried to pull out the fluid reservoir but one of the nipples at the bottom snapped off. I did notice that the reservoir had the tell tale markings of a junkyard part.

I purchased a replacement part via Ebay by a vendor called Vintage Europarts (vintageeuroparts.com) without the sensors.

Here is the link: Brake master fluid reservoir container with caps 0004316402 0014314202

Well I hoped the old level sensors would fit, but the diameter is larger than the new reservoir!

What to do? I need to measure the difference in diameters and see if it is feasible to grind the insides of the reservoir to get the sensors to fit.

Other ideas?

The solution was simple. The new reservoir had flashing that needed to be removed and after shaving with a X-Acto knife, the sensors fit right in. Case solved!
