NV4500 lower cover leak???

I picked up this NV4500 off a fellow board member a little while back. Its got a small leak from the lower cover on the front. I got a good deal on the tranny so the leak doesn't bother me.

Its the silver dollar sized aluminum cover in the pic below. Yeah, below the input shaft cover.


The question: Is there and easy way to just pop/pry that cover out to seal it? Anyone have a similar issue? This is a Dodge case purchased from AA originally. I need to get this thing sealed up before I bolt it to the Atlas and drop it in.

that plug covers the bearing race for the lower shaft, when I bought the trannys that I built the one in my dually with one had silicone on one j/b weld on the other. When I put the tranny back together I used a good silicone to set the plug back in.

Yeah, just ended up popping the cover out, and sealing it with a high temp RTV. Should be good to go now.
