dipstick mount location

Hi Gang, having a problem trying to find the proper threaded hole to use for the tang on the dipstick tube on my 428. It has never been mounted to anything since I bought the car with the engine in it, just stuck in the hole in the block and looked like Permatex sealing it to the block so it won't leak. I managed to get it out of the hole and clean it all up but can't seem to find where to mount the tang to what hole. I thought it was the hole on the bottom of the exhaust manifold but it doesn't even come close. I looked up the correct tube and dipstick and found I do have the right ones. Engine is a 67 with C7AE-A heads.
If anyone can give me some help, I sure would appreciate it.
