You can make a plug from an old octal tube base by removing or cutting off
the pins and soldering a wire into the pin. Then plug the wire/pin into the
back panel socket. You can make a dam from an old cap plug or wax paper and
fill the plug with casting plastic, epoxy or RTV.
Plugs are available on the e place occasionally or on one of the several BA
or equip lists.

Healthfully yours,
                          Don W4BWS
