Well, it is not exactly gravity drain. The canister is pressurized because of the inflow of oil through the restrictor. But, the flow is being restricted. The grain holes see the same pressure in the...

If you are not wanting to keep it 100% original, relays are a good option.

Pencil test - could you rest a pencil on the block just above the timing cover without it falling off. Earlier blocks yes, later blocks no.
