Broke off hose on radiator, what do i do?

ok so im doing an egr delete and changing the oil cooler rite now. i was tearing everything down when it came to getting the small line on top of the radiator that goes from the rad. to the degas bottle. i broke off the port that comes off the rad. it only looks like it is a overflow or something, bu not sure? can i just jb weld or fix this somehow without getting completely screwed? has anyone else ever done this?

You could epoxy it somehow. Getting an epoxy that will stick to that thermoplastic might be tough though. With radiator temps and pressure, you would probably be better off getting a new radiator. Another option might be to drill that area out, tap it to a large pipe thread, and get a fitting to screw and epoxy in place. Not sure how thick the plastic is though.

No actually this just happened two days ago, you must be thinking about someone else! I was thinking about just tapping it and putting a brass fitting in it but wasnt sure of how much preassure is actually there, and how well it will seal up. Thanks everyone for your help!
