@ August 30, 2009 5:03 PM in black pipe to copper - brass fittings?attach copper directly to the black iron since you have a closed system and the water is free of oxygen.
Those fittings that you have are called copper x male adaptors, Typically, you see these as wrot, i.e. copper fittings. I believe they also make them cast (brass), but they may be hard to find and/or a special order by the box.

I still remember that dinner with you in Berkeley a few years back. Stop in again sometime, buddy.
@ August 18, 2009 1:44 PM in Raditor Threads not matchingAngle valves come with 3 parts: valve, nut and spud. The threads on the valve (where you screw on the nut) are not standardized and differ with manufacturers. You will need to remove the spud and nut from the radiator and use the one that is correctly mated with a valve. I'd go buy a new valve.
