Those three are the way they bored the oil channels . On end you will see a plug for the cross channel that ties them together . All can be used to monitor oil pressure ,temperature add or remove oil ie. filter (partial type )  feed .

In the picture below:

Does anyone know what the two screw in plugs labeled 'A' are or were used for ?

Also is the plug marked 'B' above the pressure relief valve able to be used for oil pressure monitoring after the relief valve ?

Any water soluable oil will work.  There used to be several sources that were labeled as water pump lube but they are getting hard to find.  I usually get mine at NAPA And just ask for water pump lube as the brand they carry seems to change from time to time.  Last time I bought it I got a Prestone brand but they have a similar product at Walmart occaisionally and itmis much cheaper.

My 2 cents aren't needed, but..  50/50 pre-mixed or diluted by me.  Green ethylene glycol rules.  Change about every 5 years.

That's ok for you southern boys ! Up here if your storing in unheated space you will see a few -20 nights . Plus premix has no minerals in the mix water .  ;)

I use green Prestone as well, but found that I never overheat with a 70/30 or 60/40 ratio of water to antifreeze (mostly water).

Tom,

The line from reservoir to master cyl is 5/16" copper tubing with flare connectors.  45 degree flare

You can purchase from Grainger or a good industrial supply company. 

See Link:  ( Click for Long Nuts for proper fittings)  Used on old hydraulics and modern pneumatics.
