Hi Ken,

I remember this requiring a thin wall socket. I suggest you take the 
reservoir with you to the tool store to find a socket that will work.

If you are planning to use Dot 3/4 fluid, paint the reservoir with a 
catalyzed paint. Most (if not all) of the rattle can paints will lift 
with exposure to glycol brake fluid. I tested a panel sprayed with PPG 
Acrylic Urethane single stage with Castrol LMA fluid and it had no 
affect on the paint after 3 days.
