Can it be fixed?

Had a little oops on my radiator and had to do late night garage trama surgey I've replaced the radiator but if this can be fixed I'd like to keep it for a spare but being plastic in the corner I don't know if I could tap it and thread something in, so any ideas would be great.

Well if they can do it for under $30-50 fine but if not I'll try some epoxy and a better fitting.

Is that the air bleed line to the expansion tank I'm assuming? It is common that they break off. Most guys drill/thread the hole, and install a hose barb fitting with some silicone or epoxy on the threads.

Patience is key. Don't get rammy, or you'll break it more.
