MATCO BRK FLUID RESERVOIR KIT
I purchased the reservoir and the reservoir kit. The reservoir that I received did not have a 1/8 NPT port as described but a 1/8 flare fitting and the kit came with a 1/8 NPT fitting that does not fit. The thread at the reservoir is BSPP, standard parallel pipe, the other end is UNF-2B not 1/8 NPT.
