    Purchased an Acova radiator from screwfix to be baffled as to how do i connect the valves? Lower right of the radiator has a protective cap which once removed there are threads to screw the valve onto the radiator. However the lower left side appears to have no hole/thread. Just the cast end. Have a been given a dodgy radiator that has not been drilled with a thread for the valve?

    Your photo just looks like a plastic plug that has been sprayed over during manufacture. Try an allen key in the middle hole it has lugs.
