I don't know what size it is, but I can tell you that the standard aftermarket peacock style is not the same. I tried threading one into a junk radiator I had. It destroyed the threads.

I hate the factory design where it's a "bolt" style and not a true petcock. This has always been one of mt pet peeves.

GSL-SE have a drain plug in their radiators? Fancy, if it was an SA, no drain plug, you pull a hose instead.
