My guess would be an alignment hole used during the machining process of the block but that's just a guess.

I have no idea... have to look and see if I have one while my engine is out!!

Go Fish! <*////><

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Yeah I believe it was used in the factory as a way to hold the block/align it. I believe my block has one on the other side as well.
