Common hydraulic fittings: ORB, JIC and ORFS all use inch fractional NF threads.

    I worked at our family auto parts since the mid 60's. I saw all the disasters when the U.S. started blending in metric into its cars. The customers insisted that metric thread bolts had SAE heads. (That 1/2" wrench fits that metric bolt). We became the most popular shop in town when we hung a thread pitch gauge at the counter. It was frequently replaced because the threads got cross threaded. Side note: Chinesium parts will not always have the same thread pitch as the OE part. Many a part returned with stripped out threads. I know because of side by side comparison with the originals.

    The nice thing about Chinesium castings is that you can screw in any pitch and the fitting makes its own thread. Just use JB Weld for thread sealant.

    When I first started at Case Industrial, (which I don't work there anymore) I had to cap off a hydraulic line to keep it from pissing all over the place. Stockroom was all out of that particular size caps, and the parts manager taught me this quick hack. He went and grabbed a fine thread nut, said weld up the end of that, stick you a piece of thick plastic or rubber in there, and cap it that way. Think I still have it rattling around in my junk drawer too.

    Same thread, but you must be careful of pressure ratings. Not all fittings are rated the same due to wall thickness. Although when in a pickle this is 100% doable. Keep in mind, there's nothing more permanent then a bodge that works!
