Straight -16 ORB to -16 Male Flare Fitting - XL
ORB stands for "O-Ring-Boss" which is an SAE straight cut thread that seals by the use of an o-ring. The opposite end of the ORB fitting is a 37° JIC flare and seals via a matching 37° seat on the hose-end. No thread sealant is necessary or recommended with these fittings.
This particular fitting is 1.00" longer than my traditional -16 ORB to -16 male flare fittings and was designed to move the hose-end nut out from under the J Series swirl pot rear cylinder cross-over tube, where tightening the water pump inlet connection would otherwise be difficult.
