This 1979 Jeep CJ 258 6 Cylinder Block has an NPT Type of oil gallery plug installed on it, behind the timing cover.

The rear/Back of this 1941 through 1947 ford flathead inline 6 cylinder engine block appears to have two NPT Type oil gallery plugs installed on it.

This is a picture of the front of the same 1954 through 1964 ford inline six cylinder engine block that i had posted five pictures above. I am posting this picture to show that the other picture of this engine (in the first/top picture above) is the rear/back of this same engine (not the front). Hopefully your rear oil gallery NPT Type of plug is not missing.

In the worst case possibility, if your rear/back oil galley plug is missing, you can still install a new plug with the engine still in the vehicle. But the transmission will have to be seperated from the engine to install the rear plug.

if the rear external plug were missing there'd be quite a mess of oil on the floor & very quickly
 
if an internal plug is missing the pump may still flow the oil you saw in the dizzy hole but not be able to fill the lifters & flow to the top end
 
personally I don't fire the coil until I get oil to every rocker arm, by turning the oil pump shaft with a speed handle & rotating the crank in 90* increments... 
the lifters may not fill & flow unless the plungers get exercised over the cam lobes
 
it's pretty amazing there's not more experience with the Ford 6-pop out there to answer a few basic questions about the oiling system
