looking for replacement tailpieces for runtal valves

BoonBoon Member Posts: 237
I'm looking for at least 4 extra tailpieces for Runtal decorative radiator valves. I don't see them sold separately.

The valve & tailpiece don't seem to be a pair, you know, like ground joint unions, so I'm wondering if there is a generic tailpiece that might also work. Anyone know? If there is, I'm not going to be picky about the other end of the tailpiece... sweat, threaded, female/male, ... whatever.

For what I'm doing, I don't really need these extra tailpieces to be decorative.

Thanks
David

    @hot rod a Caleffi PEX manifold fitting worked! Mostly. I mean, it would not pressure test at 100psi but it held at 50psi, which is good enough for my temporary use.
