radiator nipple lip

Just a quick thought - if you screwed the hose to the piece *above* the hose
clamp, I doubt it would leak or blow off. Maybe even a couple screws or an
"all the way through" small bolt. Or as George says, it might last a few
months and then blow the whole thing off. Might be a good temp repair until
a new one can be installed though.
