Chris you were the only brave soul to venture a answer so why don't you ask a question?
MAN I was going to say that on my first post but then thought you wouldn't put anything that easy on here!!! And it looks like it was brazed or welded where the flex tube goes on instead of the original pipe It threw me off If only I could have enlarged it !!! Well lunch is over be on later.
