I have a big Bird 8738 water cooled dummy load I want to use with RG-213 or similar co-ax. The "connector" on the load is a flange type of about 3 and 1/8 inch OD on the outer of the connection.
Here is the Bird manual for your Bird 8738. Turn to page 8 for proper connections.http://www.bird-technologies.com/~/m...920-8730S.ashx

3-1/8 inch broadcast hard (rigid) linehttp://www.eriinc.com/Catalog/Transm...ne/STD350.aspx
Adapters / Reducers are mfg. for the commercial broadcast industry.
Since 3-1/8 rigid line is normally pressurized with Nitrogen, you will find all commercial
connectors are pressure rated.http://www.eriinc.com/Catalog/Transm...pter%3EReducer
Reducer from 3-1/8 to 1-5/8http://www.eriinc.com/Catalog/Transm...LA350-150.aspx
