Gardner 5LW mystery holes in crank case

Hi All,

Looking for some information. I have a Gardner 5LW in my recently acquired vessel and have identified the source of an annoying oil link that has been plaguing me. Far less sinister that I had feared, it turns out to be 2 small holes in the S/B side of the crank case. Clearly there was something attached there at some point, but looking at the documentation, I can't identify what it might have been. I'm really just looking to confirm that nothing ill will come from me plugging them.

Any ideas?
