Reverse thread bushings

You may want to double check ,but the only radiators that I know used reverse threads were "steam only" radiators made in the early 1900's... They used oneway nipples to pull in the sections.Just the lower sections were attached .

    Reverse thread bushings

    I am converting some radiators from steam to hot water & I need a couple of 1-1/2" LHT x 1" ST black bushings. Is there a source for this outdated fitting?

    Ya, I got a few, most rads-on-feet on my side of the border were usually tapped LH, I`m not sure if you can still get them here though, I never looked. I usually use L&R nipples and reducing 90`s.
