I think all that is done is that an oil line is run from the galley on the left side to the galley on the right at the rear of the block...

Check your PMs.

I sent you the info.

It does block the lifter galley on the right/pass side.



Cool

If there is a problem I am interested in learning what it is and what the solution is.

Having lived it with a customer I can speak to the GM BBC.
The oil from the left side travels around that groove in the distributor shaft housing to the right side.

In my case the engine in question was an older Corvette. The owner was too lazy to clock the distributor correctly so he just moved the plug wires around to make it work. The only problem was that the vette distributor at that time was cast with that groove NOT going all the way around the housing. Yup, he turned the dist. in such a way as to block off the oil to the right side.
I had primed and set the rockers at the shop so I knew it was getting oil. It was a matter of asking "what chaged between here and there?"

This also means that if your drill operated pump primer does not have that groove you will not get any oil to the right side.

Dart blocks have a known issue on the right bank
If the distributor don’t seal off the end of the lifter valley. The fix is to drive a plug in the galley between the distributor hole and the last lifter bore to stop the leak

The distributor housing seals the right bank so if the fit is loose excessive oil will bleed out here. If you use a MSD distributor with the two O ring grooves, us the O rings! You will see that the right side will get oil much faster when priming a new motor. Also as mentioned the last hole after the lifter can be plugged in the back of the block.

For what its worth I have used the same Brodix aluminum block for 4 seasons and have never burned a push rod. There is no plug in the oil galley past the last lifter on the right side. MSD distributor with no o rings. The block came with restrictors that go in the front of the lifter oil galleys and those are installed.
