A/C Fittings How to measure?

How do you measure the inlet on a a/c condenser to determine what size hose fitting to purchase? ID or OD or what?

Most of the time the fitting is determined by the line size. Tubes are measured by the O.D and Hose is Measured by the I.D.

Is it an o`ring fitting or a seal washer fitting? GM?

My compressor has two male flare fittings coming out the top, one is a #8 the other is the suction and its a #10. I need to know what size female flare fittings to order to fit these. The company that sells these a/c flare fittings goes by inches when ordering fittings. But they use numbers for the hose, go figure.
