    Whats the bit that you put into the radiator that the Valve/TRV attaches to called? Its compression one end and threaded the other.

    Can't think of the name but if your looking for a replacement I tried a couple of months ago, I couldn't.

    Had to buy a new valve complete and then fit everything.

    They are called radiator tails, assuming you are thinking of the ones that screw directly into the bottom of the radiator. They are cheap enough and you can buy them singularly. They are notoriously bad to seal, either a fair mass of PTFE tape is needed or like I used, a liquid PTFE which was the only one to seal it correctly. I also got one with a drain point built in.
