Relocating the oil drain tube

I'm thinking of picking up this HM80 on the cheap to replace the current block on the Powershift 824 because I broke a tap in one of the mounting holes for the muffler. The current HM80 on the machine has the oil drain tube coming out of the back of the block instead of the pictured one where it comes out of the left side over a wheel. I can see a hold in the block of this one and an indent in the flywheel plate where my current engine has the drain, so can a guy drill into the hole and relocate the tube to the back, and just put a pipe plug in the current location? He doesn't have a picture of the bottom of the block posted, so I don't know if there's a channel cast in the block or not.

Take a closer look around the base of the block. Lots of times there is more than one hole and it'll have a pipe plug in it. If there is then it's just a matter of switching things around.

In another picture posted in the add, there is a pipe plug on the right side of the block. Still the same problem of the wheel being in the way.

I'll probably see it in person over the weekend and can likely tell then, just wanted to ask if anyone had drilled and tapped the hole on the back for a drain.

Heck. Do what I did and just put a 90 elbow on it and run it to the back. It worked out fine. Something like this...
