    New tail for old Peglers Radiator Valve

    I need to replace a radiator, one of the valves is a Peglers B.S 2767 the tail in the old Rad is proving very difficult to remove can you still get tails for these valves? As replacing the valve will involve a lot of work I have a Wicks 15mm x 1/2" valve but the treads appear to be different.
