    ...yes. the trick is in finding the "brass" adapters that thread into the pumps valve body you have there. the reason brass adapters are always utilized, is yes, to adapt different trim line ends...but more importantly, to never bugger up the threads in the easy-to-bugger-up aluminum female threads of the valve body by taking them off & on & off & on. and also the possibility of also stripping the same female threads by over tightening a stainless trim-hose end into the same valve body. in a salt envirement the brass adapters also cut down on corrosion issues. don't ask me where to find a couple of brass adapters. i've been out of circulation too long now, lol. someone else here should chime in that knows...

    Take your trim pump and lines in to a local hydraulics shop and supply business. They are around this kind of stuff all the time. Counter guy should have you fixed up in 5 minutes.

    ...what zebra said. if memory serves, it required two brass fittings per line, at the valve body, because of the unusual trim line fitting sizing. maybe they make the proper singular adapter brass fitting these days. been a long time...
