          Cap off or install a connector pipe to the other pipe opposite side of radiator.

          It all depends on what type of system you have that makes that decision.

          This will make the system operable and possibly a gasket between the radiator panels is leaking, and can be repaired.

            Thanks I finally found someone who knew what to do. Which is justy what you explained. But it really cost me. Over 700 dollars. The radiator is offline now and prospects for finding a replacement are slim but the hunt is on to find one for less than a college education.
