Filler connections on series C deck plate.

Has anyone come across a fitting that can replace the vented fill cap on a Series C deck plate to connect a 38mm fill pipe (besides the one Plastimo and tek tank ones) ?
I don't really want to use a plastic connection. It's a straight fitting.

Pics below are of the deck plate and plastic filler kit that I'd rather not use.

Something like this, do you know what thread you've got on the deck plate?

Thanks mate, I need a female screw cap though.
I still can't get my head around how you measure the threads
Wonder if this one will do?

Is it to fit a 38mm hose onto it or does it mean it screws onto a 38mm fitting?
I'm really technical me!

It means the flexable pipe will have a bore of 38 mm to fit over the tail and the femail thread is 1.1/2" BSP (which is a pipe thread) and refers to the bore of the steel pipe

She wanted to go the doctors to get something fitted so there would be no more babies. I said forget that! Made her one out of a swim hat hardened with some resin
