Explanation:
Since the text deals with lubrication I suppose that an "oil gallery" = "oil passage" is meant.

Explanation:
see the reference below:definitely a sort of distributing channel.
"Distribution of Lubricating Oil

Oil from the cooler is directed by a vertical passage to the main gallery of the cylinder block. (Refer to fig.
8-9 and the directional arrows.) As shown in figure 8-9, this gallery distributes the oil to the main bearings
and to a horizontal passage at each end of the cylinder block."
Good luck!
