Drain Plug

Does anyone know where i can get a drain plug assembly with a PCD greater than 1 1/4" (quickly)

It was fitted with one of these :http://www.saveonboating.com/proddet...9%2D0714DP1PLB
.... but after removing it today (loose) found the hole behind to be 1 1/8" D and 1 of the 3 screws only held in by sealant due to the hole being
about 1/4" oversize....... hoping for a run out next week so your help would be appreciated

ASAP supples have a 1" BSP drain, reckon the PCD would be fine.
Mebbe even the 3/4 would be OK.

DOH! Must engage brain. Think BSP OD is bigger than nominal size, so that 1" one is a monster.

Was looking at a couple of the larger ribs today at drivers that had the kinda thing i'm looking for but didn't have my camera

perhaps this crap drawing makes it a little clearer .........

need to find something with screw holes further apart to allow for secure fitting

Which I reckon the 1" BSP one will.

How about something like this

http://www.aquafax.co.uk/html/produc...s.asp?ID=12449

The outer diameter of the threaded part is 26mm.

Or failing that the second item from the bottom here.

I have one in my hand here at the moment, and it might be a touch small.
The holes are on a 36mm PCD
