Ghetto Fab

In an effort to get my car running I ghetto fabbed this:

Any idea what it is?
It's the engine water inlet off of a 240z
With a giant bolt shoved down the heater core water inlet
Held together with JB Weld, and JB Putty
It actually worked out OK, but it's not the prettiest

I'll be replacing it with this:

Available on 79-83 280zxs (and possibly other same year L series)
The heater core inlet is threaded on this piece
whereas on earlier models it was cast as one piece
So I threaded it out and popped in a 1/2"NPT plug

Side by side



Apply trusty grey RTV:
