    This defeated me so I'm prepared to look silly when someone gives the obviously simple answer!
    Have to replace a rad that was (cos its not there) no doubt imperial. Pipe tails to centres 555mm apart. Has 3/4" thread lockshield one end and Danfoss trv 1/2" thread the other. 505mm between threads. For curiosity sake can anyone work out what size rad it may have been?
    The pipes are curved out of a concrete floor with brand news tiles on it so it's gonna be butchery. A 500 rad with new valves and some pipework I'd rather not put my name to. And I'm suppose to start xmas shopping today.
    A friend in need is definately a pain in the arse!

    You've lost me there Kev? Just the rad tail on the 1/2" end puts it over the 505. With two new 1/2" it goes to 595.

    Tried to sort that at Plumbcentre but couldn't make it work. Butchery it is then- and if I don't get into gear it'll be dark!

    Deep joy! By using the wee Monument olive puller, raising the rad and some pulled 's' bends that would grace Brands Hatch- success. Don't know what the fuss was about! Did anyone solve the original size riddle?
