Well, it will be screwed into the pump at the outlet end, about an inch
long, brass, threads into pump and has female threads on its other end
(or did I get that backwards?)  Looks just like a short fitting, but has
internal stuff, as Ti said.

here is the similar but not identical setup on the 90Q:

You can see the check valve between the red and blue power terminals if
you look closely.  Sorry, I didn't photograph the coupe setup when I had
it out to rebuild.
