Help!! 6.0 New Oil Cooler Cover has no threads for the brass valve!

I recently purchased a new oem oil cooler cover for my 6.0 because my old one was cracked. Everything Is exactly like the old one but the new one doesn't allow me to transfer over the brass valve due to it not having threads, a recess for the oring to sit in, and a drilled hole. Should I be concerned about not installing this brass valve. It seems like its some sort of a relief valve or maybe a spot to connect a gauge to check the hpop pressure. If anyone knows or could help me would be appreciated. I don't want to install if its something much needed

Pictures would be helpful. Take pics of both and post the image code from photobucket.com here after you upload the pics to it.

That's just the test port. They aren't used for anything. Your all good bud.

From what I can see in your pics, there is no thread there but the oil passage hole is. If this is the case, you are going to have a big oil leak!

The hole isn't there. It's closed up and not tapped.
