Ford 2-spool port thread

Have a Ford (not Tisco or aftermarket) two-spool /two-handle hyd plate. This is a side-by-side model, not the stacked one, and has the turn-in/-out screw on one spool for running a single-acting cylinder.

Here’s my question: Was there a standard thread size for those ports? If so, was it NPT or SAE or ORB or BSPP or...?

Thanks.

Yes 9/16 18 thread same as number 6 orb, I use a straight adapter and a copper sealing washer to adapt to a jic flare for attaching the hose.

Most were ORB but I do have one that has NTP pipe threads.

Most ORB fittings are SAE thread with a taper for a o-ring.

Never seen any with BSPP.

It uses a conventional thread (I *think* 9/16" fine), but not a conventional seal. Because the valve uses a banjo fitting, the sealing is done on the outside face of the valve body, not in a port chamfer like an ORB fitting, or in the threads like a pipe fitting.

The pic below shows an adapter you can buy that would allow you to connect a 3/8" NPT fitting to it if you'd like.

Edit: I just ran out and looked at my 6000 remote valve. It is indeed a 9/16" fine thread, and it does have a chamfer for an ORB fitting. I'm not sure that this is true with all similar-era Ford remote valves though.

I meant thread type, not thread size.
