Fitting to flush outboard

Does anyone know what fitting will allow me to connect hose to my Suzuki outboard using the socket on the leg instead of muffs ? I do not have chance to take the bung out and match it but would like to take suitable Hozelock or similar next time out with the boat. I have access to all types of pipe fittings but have no idea what thread it will take.

Just been and bought one myself. Looks like 1" outside diameter on the thread and 16 threads per inch. Not sure that matches up with anythin hoselock though . And how do you find your Prosport with a 115?

Yeah it does - but poorly. The standard female connector sort of works. Been using it for a season....

Is it better to use the socket or are flush muffs just as good? I've got the correct fitting adapter for my Evinrude but never used it.

On our Suzuki, the hose connector is used without the engine running and the muffs when it is running.
