Simms injector pump

The side plug for checking oil level seems to be striped. Is there an easy remedy for this? besides a new pump? I have it finger tight with out any leakage but do not trust that.

Glue it in. I'd use JB Weld and make sure it all stays outside! Just measure the correct amount of oil.

There are a couple of Simms pump hacks you might be interested in? Remove the overflow vent hose and plug it, then drill a small vent hole in the filler cap. This stops all the overflow getting in your tray or stops having to waste time with a catch bottle. You might find that the filler is already drilled, if you are lucky. The other one is to remove the drain plug and machine a small adapter to take a small brass tap. Then you can stop opening and closing the plug and running the high risk of stripping it.

You do religiously change the oil every 50 hours? A ziplock bag is the best way to catch the oil.
