Cant hurt to try a pipe plug(a straight thread plug may not seal under presure). The block is scrap as it sits, so if it doesnt work youre still in the same position. If this appears to be rust thru of a thin spot, try to drill/tap to a size larger than the thin spot(1/4"npt). Drill in steps, its easier, and will allow you to check the thickness of the wall as you go.
