Severe corrosion in that localized area is not uncommon, because we have two, (three if a Helicoil insert is also involved), different metals and water together, a perfect recipe for electrolytic corrosion, and that corrosion may well have removed enough metal from the fittings to make measuring threads a bit tricky !
