dipstick mount location

I'm having a problem trying to find the proper threaded hole to use for the tang on the dipstick tube on my 67 428 engine. It has never been mounted to anything since I bought the car. It's just stuck in the hole with some Permatex around it so it won't leak. I managed to get it out of the hole and clean it all up but I can't find which hole to use for the mounting tang on the tube.I looked up the correct tube and dipstick #s and I have the right ones that are supposed to fit. I don't know if the tang has been unraveled from the tube and it is too long or what, but the bottom hole in the front of the head is too high and the lower bolt on the ex. manifold won't fit either. Hoping someone can tell me where this damned thing mounts up to.
Thanks, Bud
