Oil pressure port. 1/8 pipe thread. Yours evidently had a mechanical gauge in a previous life.

pipe plug

Go to Home Depo or a hardware store and get a simple 1/8" pipe plug. Pending you don't need or want a oil pressure guage. Thats one of 2 places where Chev has been putting thier oil pressure senders for as long as I can remember. The other place is by the oil filter.
Hope this helps !

Oh ok, we'll I've been having oil leak threw their for the past couple days and it builds up quite a bit , is it possible to get a new hose with the 1/8 pipe thread

Also I'll check today if I have it where the oil filter is, or the electrical gauge... Because the one that is leaking where the rear intake is, I know it's leaking but even before I never seen oil flowing threw , but my gauge inside works

Well I took out the oil pressure unit that I had on the back of the intake, and their it was the hose was cracked right at the tip, also it was connected tothe gauge so I won't be plugging it ..

I just got a new kit which was $5 which included new hose and nut to connect to the gauge and to the rear block near distributor
