    'AN' fittings refer to a style or thread form used by the army/navy in USA, JIC fittings are just a different style and thread form and format. To be honest the specifics are probably best left to the hydraulics guys to resolve as some fittings are tapered and others flat faced with 'o rings' etc. if you take the coolers down to a hose fitting guy he will know exactly what works with what.

    Mark, sorry, I disagree. 1/2" bsp and 1/2"npt thread forms are not compatible in a system under pressure. They may both be 14tpi, but the angle of engagement is different, plus the profile of the thread differs, so if you want to run them at 5psi you might get away with the joint not leaking, but dealing with hot oil, material expansion and reduced contact area, the joints will leak. You are better off getting correct adapters for each, such as bsp to jic and npt to jic then the thread forms will be correct to the duty intended. Your reference sources may be relying on thread form fillers or deformation of the threads to achieve the seal, but from an industrial perspective this is not recommended.

    AN and Jic are the same it is just a difference in term. Both are same thread and 37 degree seat.

    Interesting trip...broke an axle on the boat trailer
    Had to drive back to hobart then back to swansea with a new axle
    One of those nothing goes right trips!
