remove radiator and take it a radiator repair shop it should run 25-50 to get a brass nipple installed.
they remove the tank from the core to repair it.

Ok thanks chezit. I knew you would have an answer for me. I was just reading about tapping the hole for a 1/8 barbed fitting myself. What do you think of this. Or should I just take it to a radiator shop.

Plastic threads are tricky. When using the tap besure to cut threads in 1/2 turns then back out and clean threads before starting again. Plastic cuts strips. Metal cuts chips. If you take your time with the threading process, you should be fine. The trick is to get long enough threads into the plastic to support physical pressure on the brass barb fitting.

I would suggest, if you do it yourself, that you do the threads, screw the brass fitting to get a good fit check and then take some JB weld made for plastic applications, coat the brass fitting threads and screw it in. The JB weld will give you a more secure fitting.

I was thinking palsti-weld. That stuff held a mirror on for years. Melsts the plastic together. maybe not though.

I have done this literally 50+ times on a nipple on the top of the radiator of Cadillac Cts' that was bad to break and new radiator was over $1300....But the tank had plenty of "meat" to tap it, and screw in a nipple with some sealer on it (RTV is what I used) Never had one come back.

I say if the tank had enough "meat" to get some good threads, go for it.

I agree! The reason I suggested JB weld is that it is a hard epoxy where RTV is a soft sealer. FWIW

Wow, old post. I used a brass nipple and black RTV. It has held for a year now.

Yeah that is what I ended up doing. I did like the idea of using the jb wield though, but I already had the rtv handy so that's what I went with.
