Mechanical oil pressure outlet for 302 ford

If my memory is correct, the 351 blocks had two places you could tap in a mechanical oil pressure gauge tube, one at the stock position by the fuel pump and I think the other one was up near the top of the block back by the bell housing. The question is, do the 302 blocks also have access for an oil pressure gauge near the back of the block?

Thanks for that follow up Oldrod. I was afraid of that. I wanted to avoid running my tubing from the gauge all the way to the front of the engine, but it looks like I'll have too.

I have a 71 block I just looked at and it has a port, but it is not threaded and it looks like it would be under the intake. You got me wondering so I went out to my other shed and looked at my 68 block, and 85 roller block, they are the same. I then checked the engine in my 73 Mustang, it has a 78 block, it is the same.
