I use a boat plug. Saw off the T-handle to clear the cap. I don't tighten it, just push it into the tube. Goes in slightly snug until the larger diameter bottoms out. Can't fall into the engine.
Threads on the bottom are crimped so the lower hardware can't fall into the engine.
Don't quote me on the size. Can't recall what I used, but it looks like this.
