Changed Thermostat, flushed radiator and added new radiator fluid thanks to the great advice on the forum. As expected, I have a slow leak out of the drain plug. The petcock is old looking for sure, but many people post about replacing it with a brass petcock. I can't seem to find any. Does anyone have a link? Or do most people just replace with it with the plastic one with some plumbers tape around it?

The o-ring is the only part that does any sealing, so using PTFE tape around the threads is not the correct approach (even if it might work).

I bought a new one at Autozone for $4, and the problem was corrected. Thanks for the reply.
