Large Flange Stainless Water / Diesel Deck Fill ?

I need to replace all three of my deck fills, but discovered that two of the three I bought a year or so ago (in anticipation of doing this) are too small. The flange is too small, as is the neck that fits into the cut hole. Rather than re-engineer the hole, I'd rather get the right size fill, but can't seem to locate it - and can't remember where I got the one (waste) that is of proper size.

The proper measurements are 1.5" for hose; 3.5" flange; 2" neck (that fits cut hole). Does anyone know where I can find these?

Thanks,
Scott

3 1/4" here: New Stainless Steel Deck Fill Water 1 1/2". But that's probably no help. 3 5/16 here: Scandvik Marine Inc. - Products

Ugh! Thanks for the tips, but no one seems to have the larger version. Guess I am going to have to re-engineer the hole.

Why not simply add a bushing made of 1/4" thick starboard? Fix that to the deck with flush fitting machine screws through the old bolt holes and then mount the new deck-fills through that and the the deck with new bolts. That would make for a fairly neat installation with minimal barin damage, no?

yep, that's basically what I'd planned (though I hadn't thought of starboard). still seems strange that i can't find the larger size anymore. too simple, i guess.

FWIW take a look at Deck Fill with Locking Cap . A 3-5/8" flang will work.
