Default Another Mopar engine question

On this 440 unfired engine I purchased, I have a question on the top end oiling. It is a 76 block and I wonder if it oils thru the rocker shaft or the pushrods. The reason I ask is that the lifters have a hole in the top as if they pump thru the pushrods. And the rockers have a squirt hole as if the pushrods lube them. The problem is , the pushrods are solid and could not lube anything. I noticed the Comp catalogue lists two different numbers for the lifters and I have another 440 that doesn't have holes in the lifters either on the side or top. I just don't want to crank this thing with mismatched parts and not be oiling the top end. Any clarification would be appreciated.

Default rockers

the mopar oils thrue the block and then the head then to the rocker shaft, so the pushrods should be solid
