I'm working on a customer's reg and I'm taking apart the post body to redo a custom manifold configuration and this is what the nipple looks like. None of the nipples I've seen have that bit sticking out at the end of the threads like that. It almost looks like a flare fitting but it's not big enough. The threads on the fitting and the female port don't look stripped or cross threaded so it's very likely that it is 1/8 npt but just wanted to make sure because there are some threads that aren't tapered the same as npt. any thoughts?

They were all in 1/8 npt ports. I mean I don't feel anything odd when screwing these into the ports. I've just never seen them like that and wanted to get a second opinion :)

It's a 1/8 JIS hydraulic fitting. Maybe 37' degree but not hard to tell from the pics.

Just because it looks like it fits, doesn't mean it fits. The guy just put a ton of teflon/pipe dope on that.
There's 1/8 JIS, BSP, BSPT, and they all "fit" with enough teflon tape. Not sure if it's advisable to interchange fittings like that.

yeah that's what i was thinking. he put a lot of teflon tape on this baby :icon_lol:

the 37 degree flare definitely looks like it but the "flare" on this fitting is much less pronounced than the pictures google are showing

ill just ask the guy where the heck he got these :hihi:
