    IIWM I would put in a new valve with a separate drilled orifice installed in the valve spud union.
    What is the operating pressure and EDR of the radiation?

    @ttigert : That looks like a Webster Sylphon type valve near the top of the picture.

    Did that orifice nipple come out of a convector by any chance?
    Was it threaded in vertically in the bottom end of that convector?

    To the best of my knowledge, that "restricter" is "OEM".
