    Behind the threads is approx the same as the minor diameter of the threads. The white thing to the left is a spout held there by a spring clip. I don't have the retaining collar for the spout

    2" NPT is a semi common port for these as I see, and I am pretty sure that one of mine is that way.
    Have you tried 2" pipe?

    I think I did, it's been a few years. I walked all around the hardware store trying everything. The thread isn't tapered and I think the pitch is too fine for NPT

    If thats not 2" npt its a new one on me. You must have gotten the tote second hand, the collar that holds the safety cap in place also holds the spout.

    here is a site with some stuff, adaptors, IBC Tote Parts & Accessories | JME Ellsworth
    you can also change the whole banjo port to something that is easy to match

    I picked it up at HGR, no indication at all what might have been in it or who it came from. They had a huge pile, not a single one had the collar or any other fitting on it.

    There's a bunch of different options as far as threads, as well as sizes of camlocks go on the stupid IBC's.

    We had like three different caps.

    Tractor supply actually stocks a reasonable amount of the stuff.

    Sounds like Mud's solution of a Fernco coupling is the best eh ?
    The (2)tote's I have, have the banjo fittings, so I simply purchased a banjo cap (to back up the valve)
    and a Banjo to 1" npt for the downstream hose & pump.

    that looks like a style of connector that has a ring around the outside and a face seal to it. almost like the one I have on my pool pump for quick disconnect of the fitting.

    So I got a nice cam-lock 90* Street El and scurried it on over to the tank, and it fits really nice - if you point it up at 12:00, but since my bucket is pretty close to 6:00, I had to resort back to the sewer pipe as the new fitting hits the superstructure of the skid at 6:00.

    So much for going for the "nice and "right" fittings.
