Rear-End question 77 CJ5

I assume I have an AMC 20? I was putting on new brake lines and noticed a hole in the top of the tube. Does it take a rubber plug, a bolt, or what? I can take a pic if that helps.

Post a picture if you can. The 20 has a vent tube that should have a pieceof hose on it and a hole where the brake line coming from the chassis bolts down

So I reached under and took a pic and I can see the vent tube with fitting hanging down in the back ground. The bolt is where the hole is. I assume that fitting was pressed in at the factory, so what's the best way to fix it?
