Is There A Temporary Substitute For An Oil Filler Cap?

Specifically, the oil filler cap (not the dipstick cap) for Cub Cadet GT-2550?

You can find something like this in the right size and use it forever. Find a place to connect the chain and you might keep it forever, too.

No sir. Oil is all over the garage floor after the mowing session. The only possible exit from the engine must have been thru the capless oil filler hole.

I thought that the fill cap was on top?
If there is oil showing on the floor, would you think maybe something at the bottom is leaking?
On the other hand, maybe the CIA is doing brain control experiments, and you're the victim of a psychiatric mower inverter ray. They do it between 3 AM and 4 AM. But, you can block the ray by stapling aluminum foil to the inside of your garage, shiny side out.
