Well, I got my new Koyo radiator today, install went smoothly, and then came time to bleed the air system, when I backed out the air bleed screw it seperated into 2 pieces and left one piece blocking the passage threaded into the 3-5 threads deep. I contacted the shop I got it from and they are sorta like, uh....you gotta get a new radiator to get the plug they dont sell em seperate..LOL...I am assuming I can dick around and find something that will fit, even a screw, but does anyone know if like a 3rd gen plug from mazdatrix would do the trick? The 2nd gen one is just a tad too large, but the 3rd gen bleeder piece looks just about right..



Anyways, I can always weld over it or something and bleed the air out the radiator cap....

I you are that worried, leave it in there, weld an aluminum nut on there with the matching bolt.

You can buy an aluminum bung and plug from summit, take the Koyo to a welder and have them weld in a new bung.
