Default O.S. 1.6FX pressure tap-HELP!

Where is the best place to install a crankcase pressure tap on the 1.6FX? The instructions with the Perry VP30 pump says to put it in the center of the backplate. The 1.6FX has X-shaped stiffeners on the backplate that cross in the center. The optional mounting is in the mounting lug, but the 1.6FX has tapered lugs; not enough meat on the edge of the lug. Could it be mounted offset from center in the backplate as long as i doesn't interfere with the crankshaft?

You can tap the rear cover anywhere it's convenient. Just make sure there's enough metal to hold the fitting.
