Default Oil pipe on MKV 3 liter

Hi,

I'm looking for information regarding the oil pipes on a MKV 3 liter engine.
I have a MKV without engine, so I located a correct spare engine, however on the oil pipes I have some unclear view.

If starting from the oil galery under the carburators, you see a T connector coming out the oil galery.
One side goes to the oil gauge, but I have no clue where the other goes to.

Anyone who can help with a picture or some explanation????
Thanks
Dirk

Well, based on the later XK engine, maybe it is a feed to the cylinder head to lubricate the valve rocker shaft. However, normally feeds to push-rod engine valve gear don't have the oil at gallery pressure normally its downside of a pressure feed to a bearing.

Yes, indeed the 3.5 liter straight six, that was original to the Jag Mark V from 1950.

Right--will check the SPC. THe reason the size of the engine was asked was you stated it as a 3 L engine.
