reducing bushing

A reducing bushing is a NPT pipe nipple that has a male end (the end you would thread into the radiator neck) and a female end. You don't need the female thread for anything in this application. It's just that because of its intended normal use (reducing 1 pipe size to another) the construction is such that there are flats on the female end that a pipe wrench can grab. These flats make a nice "lip" for the radiator hose to slip over providing additional grip. Works great. Go to a hardware store (like Sears) and you'll find them in all sizes. You'll get the idea when you see it. I forget the exact size that will thread into the rad neck but its a good tight fit.

check on Radiators.com

excellent product (exact duplicate of OEM in most cases) for a small fraction of dealer price, and usually overnite!!

rad radiatorz gladiatorz

The MBZ dealer sells new BEHR radiators for the W126
300SE for $218 plus tax. This is the new model with the brass inserts inside of both, inlet and outlet necks.

I have my old radiator which can be repaired if anybody is interested.
You can put an insert in the inlet neck and do the epoxy.
$25 plus shipping. I can send pics and exact age and milage-duty upon request. Good radiator. No leaks. 300SE W126
Behr.

happy thanksgiving
