Hi Guys. One of my radiator has bad thread. It is so bad that regular 1/8'' tap doesn't work anymore. I looked at internet and found this video that showed to drill a bigger 1/4'' hole and use an ⅛-inch to ¼-inch bushing.

Has anyone done this before, is it relatively easy for an average ppl? I am kind of afraid that I might damage the radiator.

Thanks
