Oil Galley Plug locations

OK, I am in the midst of tracking down a low oil psi problem in my 408 stroker motor. I bought this from a guy who did all the work and I am backtracking trying to chase this down so I can get this truck on the road. He thinks it is either a bearing clearance issue (cam,crank or rod) or there is a galley plug missing somewhere.

Can anyone tell me exactly how many plugs there are in a 360 Magnum block and there location? I know of the one that blocks the intersection of the oil filter inlet and outlet that is accessed from under the main bearing cap, the plug in the distributor valley, and the two behind the cam thrust plate. Are there any others?

Help! TIA

At the rear of the engine there are 2 plugs visible. The 1 on the right (oil filter side) is a galley plug. The one on the left is an access to a galley plug about 2" in the block.... this is the one that is commonly left out and can be seen if the distributor is removed.

To be more specific. There is a cup plug in the between the oil filter in/out located in the main line from the oil pump, a 1/4"npt plug under the oil filter adaptor, 3/8" plug at the right rear galley, 1/4 "plug (This one is left out sometimes and can be see through the distributor hole) located under a 3/8" cover plug at the left rear galley and 2 cup plugs at the front of the block under the cam thrust plate.

B300, thanks for the help, I have verified that the cup plug under the main cap from the oil pump is there, the 2 cup plugs under the thrust plate are there, and there is a threaded plug inside the dist pocket. This one is accessed through another threaded plug on the outside of the block.

It sounds like there is one I haven't verified under the oil filter adapter. I'm a little confused on what you are saying with the plugs at the rear galley. I have the one that is inside the dist pocket, is there another at the rear of the engine in this area?

Your correct that there is 1 in the distributor pocket with an access on the left rear galley, the right rear galley plug is on the outside of the block.... In the bellhousing the left is an access, the right is a galley plug 1 on each side of the cam.
Your correct that there is a plug under the filter adaptor yet to be verified.
