Default Tri-clover sight glasses

Any one know if there in much difference between a 2" TC sight gauge and a 1-1/2 TC sight gauge besides the size of the clamp fitting? Im wondering if I can take the sight gauge apart and put the 2" end on one side and the 1-1/2" on the other.

Id like to make a yeast harvester like the one More beer sells, I already have the reducer and a 1-1/2" sight glass, as well as a cap with corny keg post, so all I would need would be a 2" sight gauge.

I have one of each from brewershardware. The 2" is bigger width. You cannot put the 2" on the 1.5" tube. I used a sight glass for a yeast harvester as well but changed. I start with the sight glass to know when to drop trub. Then I take it off and just dump from the bottom port into sterilized mason jars. Way more yeast is produced than what will fit into a sight tube.
