    On the front of my E47 pump there is a hole. (See picture)
    Am I missing a plug? It constantly leaks fluid.

    That is a weep hole for the pump. When fluid begins to leak out that hole it is time for a new pump shaft seal. Remove the motor from the pump and you will then see the seal.

    As Snowlane said check the seal.
    If your power unit is under two years old,
    you should be able to have it repaired under warranty.

    There is no drop speed adjustment on an E-47 lift, Meyers only offers the drop speed adjustment on their E-60 lift. It is a leaking pump seal for sure.
