Powematic 66 Dust Port Too Big?

I have just purchased a powermatic 66 and found that the metal dust port is too big for my plastic fitting for my dust collector...fitting purchased at WoodCraft. The plastic fitting fits every other tool...Jet bandsaw, Delta planer, powermatic jointer, etc. But for some reason doesn't fit the PM 66. I measured the PM66 port and it is exactly 4 inches outside diameter. The inside diameter of the plastic fitting is slightly less than 4 inches.
So far the PM 66 has been great...but for this one problem.
Any ideas for resolving this problem? Any thoughts on why this occurred?

Try some 4" PVC S&D pipe and/or fittings from the hardware store. A little fiddling, a little metal tape, a little patience, a few magic words...
Enjoy the new saw.

Take a piece of something and cut a hole from one side to accommodate the machine opening. Make the cut half way through the piece of something.
Now flip over the piece of something and make another hole from the other side to accommodate the piping. Make the cut half way through the piece of something.
Paint to match something and silicone in place/use screws/whatever.

I just had to deal with this on my minimax mm16 bandsaw. They come with metric dust collection fittings. I solved the problem using the bell end from pvc drain pipe from the local lumber yard. I bought a piece 10' long and cut the bell end off with a hack saw.
The bell end fits snuggly on the dust port (add a little duct tape to make sure it's fastened) and I have those quick disconnect fittings on my hose that fit perfectly in the bell end of the drain pipe. SH
