I don't know the EXACT configuration of the engine/pump you're talking 
about, but you ought to be able to grab that tube with some vise grips, 
dump some PB Blaster on it and wiggle it out, then tap the hole for a 
3/8NPT or whatever pipe plug.

I've done that on various castings of similar configuration.
