Yes, it is intended to be plugged.   I think it is probably just to close off the drilled passage for the balls after they are inserted during manufacture of the gearbox.  No reason to remove it unless it's necessary to replace the balls. 


Thanks for the S/N of the gearbox.  I have no record of that specific number, but I can find out which car it was original to.  It should belong to a car with chassis number somewhere around 37XXX or 38XXX.  Gearbox serial numbers vary more widely with chassis numbers than engine numbers do.

S/N 12641


So it is intended to be plugged?  Or does it need to be drilled and tapped and a proper plug put into it?
