Stock BBC block Oil Pressure Port Question
Hoping someone can help me ID a port on a stock BBC block. In the attached picture, is this an oil port and if so, is it pressurized with filtered or non-filtered oil? The reason I'm asking is I'm planning to install an oil accumulator and really don't want to install an adapter. My engine diaper fits very snugly up the entire side of the oil filter and an adapter and line would interfere and require me to cut/modify the diaper. In addition, if this is an oil pressure port it would seem a lot easier and cheaper to just plumb a line into this port. I'm planning to install the accumulator for when I'm braking. If I slam the brakes on hard after a run my oil pressure will eventually start dropping before I come to a complete stop. I'm really only looking to have the ability to add some additional oil pressure for the short couple of seconds at the end of breaking. I'm not installing the accumulator for loss of oil pressure while accelerating; my oil pressure is fine while going down the track.
I'm pretty sure this is an oil pressure port and I should be able to plumb a line from the accumulator to it. That being said, anyone know what size the port is?
