Should there be a plug here?

Was looking underneath and noticed there appears to be a bolt or plug missing here. I'm worried that this shouldn't be. Thanks in advance!

That's the wading plug I believe...technically you should plug it before heading to the water to play around.

Thanks! Do you know a part #? Is it a common bolt that I could pick up?
Could be a useful thing going to the pine barrens ;-)

Wading plug

Could I put a breather there instead of a plug ?

If so, does anyone know what is the tread size for the fitting to put the plug ?

There are also breathers on the diffs right... would it be the same plug ?

It is supposed to be open I believe (unless you are wading/fording), so that it lets the oil that leaks out have somewhere to go (besides back up and soil the clutch surface).

I wonder if anyone heer has thought of (or used) a rubber plug for quick removal?

Love it, only a Rover would incorporate a design that anticipates leaking oil to such an extent that they needed a relief hole!

breather plug, I would just plug it when off roading because it allows oils to flow out, if a breather line is installed the oils will have no where to go. you should have two of them... the other for the timing belt inspection hole, right above your axle

Doing research on this on the web, I saw that Napa 704-1361 is suggested as a wading plug. It's M14 x 1.5. they sell for 3.64$ at the local NAPA dealer (Canadian $)

That's what I got. It's a nice Honda part with a plastic gasket. Don't worry about finding a BSP plug.

I bought two plugs from Rovers North. One for the bellhousing and the other for the timing case. I have wrecked a clutch from filling the bellhousing with mud.
