it is the oil supply to the rocker shaft. Do not block it! It leaks because it is under pressure, not draining back to the sump. You will either have to find a tap to clean up the threads or have a machine shop re-tap the head and possibly install a different type of line.

Thank you for the clarification. After spending about 6 hrs worth of fiddling, I was able to tap the holes and fashion my own banjo bolts (this took most of the time). I am happy to report the leak has stopped and the supply line in is working order.
