Question Oil pressure grommet location on '69

I'm rewiring my '69 w/ center console with the correct wire harness and wanted to know if someone owning a '69 w/ console wouldn't mind taking a pic of where the grommet goes on the firewall for the oil pressure line. The current line is running through the firewall, but not where is should as there is no grommet where it enters the firewall.

I also bought the new oil line kit with bracket and wanted to know where the bracket attaches to the block. No bolt was provided so I don't know if it gets installed under a preexisting bolt or I need to get a new one.

Want to do this the correct way and not "rig" it just to get it finished.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Look at the firewall next to where the oil pressure sender goes (near the base of the distributor). There should be a dimple in the fire wall right above the threadded sender hole in the top of the engine block. You can either look for it that way or check the AIM for the page where that is detailed. Let me know if you need to see the page. It isn't that hard to find if you look for the dimple in the sheet metal.
