Well after finding out the hard way that someone had glued the tube fitting back on radiator numerous times and me trying to jb weld it and it not working .... Car show this coming sat .... My McGuiver instincts went to work lol .

First the fitting ...


Next the -4 bulkhead . I cut off the other -4 end .



Then rubber washers ..



I pulled up radiator and drilled out the little hole to accommodate the bulkhead
And tightened it down ...



I've let the car run 30 min or so plus drove it around . Took off radiator cap and watched the water flow from fitting . Refilled , bled out air ...so far no leaks :)

Lol dang ! It was fairly simple to do . It took me like 2 hours to think of it . Was going through stuff in garage and just happened to look in the bin I have extra an fitting and saw it . The light bulb clicked lol . Think it took total of 30 minutes from start to finish
