Pop out the spring and puck from the oil filter adapter , and then simply tap the hole with a 1/4" pipe tap and install a 1/4" pipe plug using red Loctite . I recommend using Wix filter's on all of the wet sump engines that we produce .

Be sure not to run the tap to far thru the hole. Thread the tap in about 3/8 of an inch, remove it, then test fit the plug. Do this till you have about a 1/32-to-1/16 of an inch still sticking up when plug is tight. I like to grind it flush so there is no interference with the oil filter.

I usually fill mine with a glob of JB Weld, and grind it flat.

I would stick to the plug...my luck the JB weld would break loose and cause problems elsewhere......
