Lycoming conversion to fixed prop

Here is a Question.
I have a O-360 Lycoming which in its earlier life on a Mooney have been running with a Constant Speed Prop. Now I want to convert it to a fixed prop. While I know that that the front end of the hollow crankshaft must be closed with an expanding plug, I am not sure about the plug which sits inside the hollow cavity at the other end. Should this plug be removed ? And how do you remove it ?
