Make sure that the ports are NPT thread. If you see "Rc", "BSP", "BSPT", "BSPP", "G", or "ISO", it means they're British Standard Pipe thread, either parallel or tapered. And you won't get a good seal without an adapter, which will be either difficult to find, or costly, or both. In fact, unless you specifically see "NPT", assume threads are BSP.
