Default Radiator Oil cooler fittings

On the built in oil cooler in the stock radiator, does any one know what type of fitting and size they are?

I have determined that is a 3/4" - 18 inverted flare fitting on the radiator, problem is that no one sells a fitting that size.

There are a bunch of specialty fitting suppliers ... are you looking for the male fitting on the hose? Or the female (to fix one bunged up in the radiator?)

Your best bet is a hydraulic hose place ... I had some made several years ago at a local hydraulic (industrial) place and it cost me something like $40.
