If you take the heater core out of your truck and take it down to a Radiator Shop they should be able braise the old nipple back into place. Have them check it over when they are done. If your old heater core is in bad shape you're better off to know about it now, rather than after you go to the trouble of reinstalling it, only to have it go in another 250 miles. After all there is a reason why it broke in the first place... the metal may be getting fatigued due to age. Mew ones aren't that too terribly expensive. Good Luck, Jim.
