Baseray air bleed valve replacement

Spring project - Base-Ray hydronic cast iron baseboard radiators. Looking for a source to replace all the air bleed valves and reducer plugs (don't know the name of the part) this is where the valve screws into. All these plugs are very corroded. Any advice on how to remove these crumbling corroded plugs without damaging the threads on the radiator?

I will also be needing to source replacement covers. Thanks.

    Don't know what covers you need Baseray doesn't have covers.

    Just wrench the old fittings out. If they snap off you may need to drill & tap if any of them break off. 1/8"ips iron pipe size. Supply house.com should have what you need.

    Are you looking for the trim for the ends? There are a number of different sizes and google shows several sources.
