I've tried 'bending' the bracket onto which the bottle is bolted for alignment purposes: I'm now runnig out of ideas (and patience!)

Any (sensible) tips would be gratefully received.
Semi sorted: a neighbour suggested I removed two screws from the scuttle to move it out of the way whilst pushing the neck into the bottle: it seemed to work.

However on re-filling, as soon as the fluid was up to where the neck goes into the bottle it leaked.

As all the washers now work, I've left it as is: I've just got to remember not to fill it to the top!
