    Default Radiator leaking from drain tap

    Hi all,
    Its not only leaking from the outlet but also the tap face itself.
    Does any one know if i can get the tap out to check the seal? I suspect it may have got twisted on opening it.

    I have done the cambelt today and this is the only thing holding me back from driving the poxy thing.

    If i cannot get it out i may be tempted to just glue it in with some araldite and in future just take the hose off.

    any suggestions welcomed.
