Welded a nut to the 1/4" nipple. Put a little longer nipple in so it will be easier to get at the cap to get it off and oil will drain into oil pan not all over the front axle. Now I can tighten the nipple easier and make sure it is tight, then I can hold the nipple and put the cap on and tighten it while I hold the nipple from moving and the same when removing. Pressure tested the nipple after welding nut on to make sure of no leaks there.  Hope it works.  Noel

 

And it runs.

Looks like it will hold. Apparently the cap was used to tighten the nipple into the engine. That won't work! Have to tighten the nipple in, then put the cap on with less force!

They do make a locknut for pipe thread, that might help too.
Nice fix, looks like it'll hold.
