oil fill tube install on performer manifold

I want to use finned Corvette valve covers on my 327. I do not want to alter thier apperance in any way. I know how to add PVC to manifold, my question is has anyone installed an oil fill tube? The manifold is a Edlbrock performer. There is a slight indent where the tube should go. I'd like to use the press in fill tube from Summit. Is this feasable? It looks like it would have to go to a machine shop. I saw a post on another site that talked about using a hole saw.

Take the manifold and fill tube to a machine shop unless you have a drill press with a table large enough to hold a manifold.

If you are going to use the drilled PCV hole in the manifold, keep it all neet and clean and just pull the PCV valve out and put a funnel in the hole and fill-er-up! Thats how I do my current engine. The tall valve covers didn't have an oil fill hole so I use the PCV hole instead.
