68 302 dipstick tube hole in block

I have a 1968 Chevy 302 (Z28) block and the hole for the dipstick tube is threaded. Is this normal? If so, what dipstick tube do I need? All the dipstick tubes I have found are the push in type.

Yup....all push in. Never seen the hole threaded in any SBC. Maybe someone knurled it to decrease diameter of hole for some reason.
