Well, here goes nothin'
I'm not sure what the fitting looks like, but if you can find a coupling for it that will "screw" over the stripped end and have
tha same threading that you need on the opposite end, then epoxy the coupling onto the stripped end. I don't know if welding it would be possible. Whatever method, make sure it is leak proof.
Realize that you are dealing with keeping vital oil in the engine
and any flub may reult in a dead engine.
$5000+= or $100+= for a new part!!

Good Luck!
