I'd be afraid to plug the hole, for fear of the cooling system building up enough pressure , to leak past the faulty seal, then leak past the oil seal and into the bottom-end.
Try stop leak first, if that doesn't work .............It's your machine.

yea its not like a trail ride that is long just going to bomb around on some property in ny with easy access to stop and monitor the level so it will be fine, unless the magicaL seal comes in the mail today
