Return line nipple broke loose. Ideas how to fix?

Have a 587 Sea Doo engine and the oil nipple from the crankcase back to the reservoir broke loose from where it is pressed into the block. Any ideas on how to reattach? Cant reach back in there for JB Weld and lock tight I think is too runny. I dont think I can get a angle drill down there to tap it either... Anyone had this problem before. Any ideas appreciated.

you can use jb weld no sweat, just have to use more catalyst to have it be semi setup when you apply it. Heads up though, it's gonna dry very fast, so work as quick and as accurate as possible. You're only gonna get one chance doing it this way. I wouldn't drill just for the metal shavings in the oil. Hope this helps
