I don’t know what it’s called, but I need to know the inside diameter of the hose that comes off the radiator at the location of the radiator cap and feeds into and/or out from the coolant reservoir tank.
I am going to have to try to JB Weld a new nipple onto my radiator where this hose ties in.
Mine apparently blew off or broke off.
I only have 3 small plastic prongs coming of my radiator and it’s not enough to securely fastened the hose to my radiator.
If anyone has any ideas on what I could use that may fit fire away.

Thanks,
Fred

I would just do it right and get a new radiator.

If you have the piece that broke off, and are dead-set on doing it the cheap way, determine what plastic the tank is made of and use a plastic cement that works with it (ABS?)

JB weld is generally a garbage product made for rednecks.
