Wow.. An oldie for sure.

No, there is nothing that is supposed to be connected to the radiator petcock valve. If you have coolant flowing out of the nipple, then you do not have the valve closed.

Thanks, I realized right after I posted this I used the original rubber washer and it wasn't sealing right
