Fuel line connector at rear of head

This fitting is on the back of the driver side head where the fuel line connects.
Is this an OEM fitting?
It doesn't match the straight fitting on the opposite head.

I cant tell if That is gease or paint, and I cant remember if mine was just a single fitting, or was two fittings. I am leaning towards saying that yes, that is OEM.

This fitting has no orings or the 1/4" rubber seal that's on the opposite fitting?
This is what's throwing me off. I've ordered the 1/4" seal for both fittings, but not sure where I should add it on this side, as the fitting in the picture is 2 pieces.

The closer I look, I think it is OEM. The rubber seal in the pic looks like its hardened and is stuck on the fitting side.
In the pic the tubing is still in the fitting?? If so, then yes, it is OEM. Threw me a bit because the SD's dont have double 45* fittings. They are just straight and the the tubing is bent accordingly.

Here's a picture from my 97. The fitting is not screwed in all the way.

That is a 94.5 fitting that came stock. The early years had a two piece fitting so it could be removed with the up pipe still in there.
