Why yes actually.

The first thing you must do, is forget about threads. When you rely on threads you rely on something that is now gone and will never return. You must take that loss and internalize it to realize there might be another way to accomplish the same task.

Then you can buy or make a cable assembly that will pull the pipe into the jug and hold it there under tension. I use a scooter brake cable and a custom made ex manifold since I run mid pipe ball joints.

I also then attached springs to the header and used some bailing wire attached around the intake side of the cyl twisted into loops to secure each side.

Seeps oil a lil bit but otherwise works great.
