I got a TR3 radiator on Ebay but it did not have the part you described.
Someone must have removed it. So I heated up a wrecked radiator filler flange
and removed it and re soldered it to the good radiator.
At least on the TR3, all those parts are soldered not welded. So if the GT6
radiators are the same, you should be able to heat up the flange and remove it
and do the same on the radiator with a good flange and re-solder it to your
good radiator. I used my standard propane torch and real lead/tin solder.
