Ist stage HP port thread

Has anyone got the thread size for standard 1st stage HP port. I know the LP is 1/8 BSP and I thought the HP was 1/4 but that's too big.

Thanks
Kevin

you might want to buy Apeks own made hoses, just to be safe.

I've got a HP outlet on my oldest (1980) Conshelf 14 which is a tiny diameter. Can't get a hose thread to fit it these days, so I've blanked it off and fitted it to one of my ponies.
