I need a 1-1/4 male to 1-1/2 female adapter, does this exist?
I finally removed the 1-1/4 union from a radiator and now I need to put my 1-1/2 union on it, but I can't seem to find any flare/adapter/reducer/bushing/fitting/whatever other name is used for these. Do these exist? Or can I make one out of 2 pieces -- nipple and a reducing coupling or some other name I can't guess?
Or... Should I try to remove the larger (iron?) plug from the other side of the radiator and plug the smaller size? The radiator is from 1898, would it be possible to remove a plug? Lots of WD-40?
