If memory serves me...

The threaded hole in the top of the transmission is for the bolt that captures the metal clip that the clam shell halves slide under. But does not secure anything internally inside the transmission. Have a look at the photo you posted on page #6, post #78. That threaded hole is open to the transmission interior so if you plan on doing some cleaning be sure to plug it with a bolt to protect any foreign material from entering the transmission. I normally use a small smear of thread sealer on the bolt threads during final reassembly to secure a good seal. Your choice. As someone mentioned earlier - don't mess with the phillips head screw, long $tory if you remove that.
