Help: Cooling system problem

Popped a hose today. It is the upper radiator hose into the expansion tank. Also in the process the plastic piece with bleeder screw cracked and broke off. Can i buy just that part, or does that come with the upper rad hose. please let me know. Need to get the car back on the road so i can get to work.

soon to be at 500 hp

Yeah that little screw cracked in half when I tried to bleed the system. It is included with the new hose.
