    I'm sorry I have to start a new thread but I really would appreciate the help, I'm installing a remanufactured pump and cant figure out what this is for. Its a acdelco part on rock auto its 36G055. The part I'm wondering is right below the pcv I'm thinking it might be a fill plug? I tried calling ac delcos tech line and I've searched on the web a few times I hope someone on here might be able to tell me. Thank you for your time

    I'm not sure what that is there for.

    I just looked at mine and it is there, but there is no plug in it. Mine looks just like the website picture you posted.

    By the way, I had steer and gear rebuild my gear box with the "Sport" feel. I installed it maybe a month ago but didn't pay attention to that hole. I love the"stiffer" feel.

      Pure speculation on my part, but check to see if that plug is just covering a blind hole- it could be just a threaded boss for mounting a (Hose? Cooler?) bracket in another application.

            On a side note, from the picture it looks like the pump end of the hose is put into your box. Have you started this up yet??

              Yes, it does look like the hose end is switched. Good catch!!
