for what its worth. When I do a pedestal.
I tap the actuator rod hole to 1/2" NC. then put a bolt and washer through, with silicone under the washer, and then a locking nut and washer on the inside, with a little silicone under that washer as well. It's overkill, but I have NEVER had one leak.
When I delete the butterfly valve in the housing, I do the same type of thing for the open hole, but I actually weld the bolt into place, so that it cannot leak past.
