Updating cam oil line fittings '76 911 S

Vehicle Information: Model: 911s; Year: 1976; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 153000;

I am trying to find part #901.105.136.01. This part is an cam oil line fitting that was an upgrade for original equipment that helps increase oil pressure and decrease oil foaming in older 911 engines. I have a 2.7L and think this upgrade would help me but have been unable to locate this part.

2.4 Litre 911s '74 911

Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1974; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 87,000;

Regarding my 1974 911, I was under the impression that the motor is a 2.7 litre. However, the engine type number is 911/92, which, I am told, is a 2.4 litre (and the engine # matches along with the VIN # inside the original owners' manual). If the engine type # were 911/97, then it would be a 2.7 litre. Did Porsche continue to make the 2.4 litre units into 1974? If it is a 2.4 litre, is it worth more/less than a 2.7, and, is it less prone to overheating than a 2.7?
