Here is another thought

Determine size of fitting on oil tank - measure outer diameter of threads with calipers and measure thread pitch with simple pitch gauge (if you have one - or eyeball the pitch and buy a couple of different couplers) - go to hardware plumbing section (or NAPA autoparts) and buy a brass coupler with the right sizes, internal threads on one end and external, male flared end/threads on the other end . . . put the new fitting on the tank and attach the oil line to the new fitting . . . if the new fitting does not fit snug enough for comfort on the tank, use a bit of JB weld on the threads of the tank before screwing it on. This will make for an excellent, permanent repair.
That idea was from a friend.
I've done these things and know its a shot in the dark with who might have this thread pitch/size in an adapter. It's an option though. Worth a shot. You might make sure on the size before searching for this adapter and make some calls.
