aargh! i was taking the rad out to move it up to the rack - and the goddamn nipple for the overflow hose broke clean off the rad - leaving only thin aluminum and a 1/2" circular hole...:frusty:
sooo -- am i pooched? i don;t have the cash for a new rad....
1) is this repairable? i figured if i had some metal below i could just drill and tap a new fitting, but can i tap a new fitting if the metal is just thin aluminum?
2) as an option --- can i plug the hole completely and tap the upper rad hose to run to the overflow?
3) if i am F'd -- since i need to buy a new rad, can i use a smaller radiator? it's going up on the rack anyway so i don;t care if it fits the stock mount.
