[Healeys] Hole in the Dash

There is a longitudinal support spot welded to the steel scuttle at that point behind the dash. The exact hardware to attach the dash is somewhat of a mystery, at least to me, but it must include a distance piece to avoid denting the dash and some washers because the hole in the support is too large for the nut on the screw. I used a #10 phillips oval headed machine screw with a stainless steel trim washer and sundry hardware to tighten the assembly and avoid damage to the dash surface. I would be interested to know how it was originally done.

Can someone please tell me what the hole is above and to the left of the overdrive switch is for.  In researching pictures on the internet I see some dash panels have the hole and others do not.  Keep in mind I am putting an early two piece dash in my BN2 just because that is what I have that was given to me by the late Tom Rocke.  This is the reason the overdrive switch seems to be in the wrong location for a BN2.  The configuration of the early two piece dash has the ignition switch and the overdrive switch locations swapped.  I have seen some pictures of the hole to the right of the overdrive switch with a screw in it, but I have no idea what it bolts to in the back.  See picture of recently assembled dash after new paint job.
