There is a thread sealer for the Speedbleeder that will work at the link below, follow instructions.
From what I recall that plug is a plastic plug, at least it was on mine. The threads are different than a brass pipe plug, and different from the MC housing so I replaced it with either a 7/16 or ½ NF grade 8 bolt cut to length, and used a bottom-end tap to re-thread the hole. I used a sealing washer from Pegasus at the link. No leaks. These washers also work great to seal the connector at the banjo bolt on WC. If you go this route, you’re looking at pulling the MC off and taking it apart. I wasn’t comfortable using a plastic plug under pressure, that didn’t fit well in the threads.
