    Nice one, thanks Jeff. It's coming from China so it should fit the rad OK!

    I wouldn’t use a carbon tap too brittle always use high speed steel the plug tap is the one to use as it’s straight through and will do a decent job I carry several sets of taps and have found I use them more and more as standards of production have unfortunately fallen in the last few years.
