I'd recommend closing off the opening in some fashion otherwise the leak over time will most likely cause a failure. Years back I had a TH350 rebuilt and the builder forgot to install the 'O' ring in that same location and over time the tranny failed.

Good luck.

If you are using a stock valve body, you should use the kick down cable. This increased line pressure and will help your trans to live.

I ran one with the kickdown cable disconnected for a few months with no problems. It would short-shift on a WOT run through the gears, and obviously would only downshift if I used the shifter, but it didn't hurt it.
