Not sure of the question. Where are those three holes? In the apron, or fender or under frame? what year is the car? what date if any is on the tank?

Need more info as well as pictures.

the Passenger left rear fender mounted taillight used the 3 hole mount from late '28 to end of Model A production in 1931. Commercial Model A's used an under bed taillight mount.
check the judging standards for details.

Are you asking about the holes that the drum taillight bracket mounts to?
I think they used rubber plugs in them when the went to the teacup light.

They dropped those 3 holes in mid '29. Vermin has them, quite a conversation item.

I think they used screws to plug the holes, with a low broad slotted head, similar to a truss head screw.
