    I buy all my hydraulic hose and ends from my dealer, they have what I need and what size I need. There are also companies that have mobile vans that go on site to deliver and build hydraulic hoses for equipment.

    JCB is all BSPP. British standard parallel pipe.

Don't mix them. You may get it on and not leak, you will tear it up on the way off.

    Easy way to tell the difference between the two is to look at the male end. BSPP is straight thread, NPT will have a taper.

    Truth be known, I love BSPP. I think it's the most versatile fitting out there.
