The plug that I was speaking of, that might have been left out, is at the back of the oil gallery that feeds the lifters in the right bank. That gallery terminates in front of the distributor shank. You would only be able to see it through the hole that the distributor goes into. In race engines, we use a plug with a hole drilled through it to oil the distributor gear.
If you have more questions, post them in a reply to this to this post. Please don't start another thread with the same subject.
