They are not sided and pretty sure they are the same on ABS and non ABS versions. Sadly I can't help out though.

I have one that is usable. You would need to swap over the yoke as it has been removed.

I seem to recall that the abs versions have a different thread size on the flexi hose. :?

Yes but its the hose only which has a larger thread size at the other end to accommodate the 4.5mm metal supply pipe.
