850W Oil Drain Tube

I was doing an oil change earlier and could not get the nut off the end of the drain tube. The tube itself spun out of the engine so I was able to get the oil change done, but the person who sold me the machine must have bent the tube a little because it was definitely spinning out in a large circle. Does anyone know where to get a replacement tube or by any chance know what the thread size is? At least then I could just hit up Lowes for a pipe or make my own.

Thanks in advance.

I checked there after seeing a bunch of positive responses. Unfortunately, they don't show anything under the Tecumseh engine section.

As far as I know it would either be a 1/4 or 3/8 on those.

I'll try the 1/4 inch Drainzit first and see if that works. I put a set of vice grips on the pipe and tried the cap but it still spun the pipe 3 times. Thank you both!
