Summer Magic is on a distinguished road
I had this problem and I happened to have enough clearance to put a drain pan under my motor. I took the oil pan off and had it tapped and threaded at an automotive machine shop and now I have a drain plug just like a car would. This was the best long term solution for me. It also cost me less than a pump by a long shot($25 to tap and thread the pan + $3 for a bolt $10 for tube of silicone form a gasket).
