Engine plate

On my 63 Avanti (63R2318 - RTS1582) engine there is a oval plate mounted to the front of the "lifter valley" with 2 bolts. What is the purpose of this plate? Are the 2 bolts held in place by threads in the block. I want to remove this plate, clean and paint it. Thanks for your knowledge.

The block is essentially the same since 1950s when it was a 224, 232, 259, when the oil fill pipe was bolted on there, a pipe sticking straight up and a cap on it. Just a cover plate, small gasket underneath it and a hole.
