Can it be fixed?

Had a little oops on my radiator long ago 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.

Yup I slipped off the stool taking the belt off so now I unhook the hose to avoid this problem.

Plastic weld? As in an epoxy or like what they do to quad bodies?

Re: Can it be fixed?

Already done and in but that little repair lasted ~3.5 months and 3,000 miles, the goo is from when it started really leaking after my trip to CO.

Re: Can it be fixed?

Clean it all up, cut it off, make a nice clean hole and put in a bulkhead fitting. Might work.
