I did that, replaced with a Walbro electric pump and blanked off the port. A big block Chevy cover is what will work. However, the blanking cover leaks also but I didn't use any sealant, a mistake I am certain. I will eventually get new gaskets and seal them. The leak is minor, annoying, but minor. BTW, the electric pump is a huge improvement if anything but to make air bleeding a simple task.
