Big Bear Oil Tank Fittings

I recently inherited a Big Bear basket case.
Just to clear the air the neck has a nice big fat gusset.

Anyway, for the life of me I cannot find / figure out the fittings for the oil lines.
The oil tank has 4 threaded bungs, three on the face and one on the bottom.
I have been through all the fittings I can find at Lowes and Home Depot and cannot find anything.
Don't want to waste a bunch of money on ebay ordering stuff without knowing if it will fit.

Any help would be appreciated.

Off the top of my head I would say they are 1/8 NPT. Maybe try to clean them up with a tap.

I've tried every fitting at the hardware store including 1/8 NPT.
Threads have a little surface rust but not enough to prevent proper thread alignment/fitment.

You would probably have better luck using a tap set to find the size..Those are usually some oddball size on those oil tanks and are fine threaded, maybe take the tank to someone and see if they have a tap that will fit ..hopefully it will have the size on it, unless it's from China.

My buddy says they're 1/4" NPT...

You have to clean them out with a tap anyways so check that one. I think 1/4" NPT is too big
