for those trying this repair, note that copper pipe comes in several thicknesses. M is the most common copper thickness for plumbing, it is very thin, K is much thicker available as 1-1/8" refrigeration tubing. L is WAAAAAY thicker, but difficult to find. you may need to track down a HVAC truck to get a chunk of K, because, plumbing supply houses sell it in 21'lengths usually... just a bit more than ya need to fix a radiator.

M copper is cold water service, (thin), L is for hot, (thicker), K is usually used for buried service entrance in the plumbing field, but is frequently sold in rolls and is flexible. Refrigeration, no idea.

There is a thread a couple years back where a guy used a metal tire air valve. with the threads on the outside the shaft.

He fished a wire from the broken nipple over to where the upper hose connects. pulled out the wire, slipped on the valve, and pulled it back through the nipple hole and secured it.

might be a good idea to connect a second wire to pull the wire back through from the wire secured to the valve.
