427 sideoiler block SOHC conversion.June 15 2012 at 9:12 PM

I have a Ford 427 sideoiler engine that I wish to carry out a SOHC conversion on with the help of Paul Munro and his components.
I have a question around the oil drain back from the cylinder heads on a non SOHC Ford 427 block. Does the STD sideoiler block allow the internal oil gallery to be drilled? Or was the factory SOHC block a special casting?
I am just trying to avoid running an external drainback.
Anyone else build a SOHC using a STD Ford Sideoiler block?
Thanks in advance,
