What are SAE Threads ?
SAE male has 45° flare which seals against 45° seat in female. Male can also seal against 45° flared tubing with nut and sleeve. 7/16 – 20, 1/2 – 20, 3/4 – 16 & 7/8 – 14 are the same thread form as JIC 37° flare. Some fittings in these sizes have both JIC 37° & SAE 45° seats.
British threads are often found on SAE thread charts, but not always. These threads include taper and parallel threads, both of which have a 55-degree angle. Thread charts also incorporate Japanese threads, which come in tapered and parallel forms as well. Some SAE thread charts include supplementary diagrams and instructions that help non-expert users to identify the correct screw or drill, and to understand how to use the proper tools. Other charts simply show the SAE thread type and how it relates to the drill sizes and dash size
