Best place to monitor oil pressure as it is at the end of the line. It will read lower gauge pressure than the plug above the oil filter as it has to go through all of the lifters to get to that point.
A lot of the early heads did not have water temp ports. Just did a 327 for a Vette that did not have them.
If you are not too concerned with original appearance get a thermostat housing with a fitting in it. They also make them with two.
completely forgot about those heads. my first car was a 64 chevy II that a previous owner had transpanted a 327 4 bb from an Impala into. Next car was a 69 Camaro 307 with accessory hoes in the heads. I quickly forgot about those old double hump heads from that 327.
