Minnewaska, I don't think the pump out guy used any kind of adapter.

I think Perko has two metal deck fills. One is for hose and one for pipe, with the pipe one being slightly larger.
See these two fills:

Could be one is the one you want and the other isn't. Or maybe they just don't make your cap anymore? You might be able to find one at a consignment store like Second Wave. I managed to find an old Perko pull ring that was designed to fit into my anchor locker lid that way.

Or just get a new deck fill. Just the cap for the Perko pipe fill is $44, while you can get a 316 stainless Sea-Dog deck fill, with a cap, for $16 or $22 depending on if it's for pipe or hose. It's like $5 for a plastic fill.
