4r70w and Coyote question

I am working on my lasted project. I am putting a coyote crate engine with a 4r70w from Performance Automatic in my daughters 70 convertible. I did a test fit today of the engine and trans. When I was checking things, I noticed that the engine spacer plate does not cover the 3 inch opening on the driver side of the block. The passenger side has the opening for the stater, any body know why the opening is on the driver side also? I had assumed the spacer plate would cover the opening from the inside when installed. Not the case. I assumed the extra opening was used as the block was being machined and would be covered when the trans and plate was installed. Possible wrong spacer plate? Also, anybody that has done this install, which shifter did you use? Any info would be much appreciated.

Does this plate cover an opening in which you can tighten up the torque converter bolts?

The plate for the bottom where you get to the flex plate bolts to the torque converter came with the trans kit. I used the block plate that came from Performance Automatic. I can not figure why there is an opening on the driver side of the block??
