Im almost to the point of starting my 69 Camaro and I just noticed something that bothers me. I have a 396 and I had a Edelbrock Preformer RPM intake put on a while ago. The thing I have noticed is thet I have no oil pressure port near the dist. I think the Performer might be covering it. i think it is a 7161 http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?part=EDL-7161
&autoview=sku.

As you can see from the pic the manifold has a straight back and no notch for the oil pressure sensor to go.

The motor ran fine before i started all the work 2 years ago.

Should I be concerned ? Should I get another manifold ?

Thanks

Chris

You will find your oil pressure tap directly above the oil filter mounting pad.

Chris,
Just to clarify .... only Small Blocks have the port up by the distributor. Big Blocks are all "down under".
