You have a few choices:

Remove the sensor and plug the hole.
Leave the sensor in place and forget about it.
Use cover p/n12552557 w/o the sensor hole in it.

Leave the reluctor wheel that fits on the crank snout in place. It keeps the shorter Vortec damper from being installed too far- which will cause sealing, crank timing gear and accessory pulley alignment problems. Only remove the reluctor if you want to use an earlier-type damper.
