any reason they need to be twisted?
They're twisted to align something with something else. Of they don't need the twist, then don't get a twist.

Re: Help me identify please..

Just as a suggestion.........why not get a marine catalouge......( maybe like West Marine) and just look at the pictures to help you identify the parts? a good catalouge will even give all the relevant dimensions.
