Oil sending unit?

Is this my oil sending unit? I'm trying to put a gauge on to check my oil psi... If this is it how do hook a gauge to it? It's a 95 5.0

Look like this?



Remove the sending unit and temporarily attach the gauge fitting here.
Or, using some MIP nipples and a tee attach it permanently.

That's a good idea.
I prefer a mechanical gauge over electrical for engine critical pressures.

I went to the auto parts store to make up the "t" to have the factory oil gauge an a mechanical... He said it would be accurate if I put a fitting outside the block to make both work.. Is this true? I don't want my factory oil gauge to just be there an not work... I may be a Lil OCD but that's just me

You mean he said it would not be accurate?


That's BS. It is just a sending unit and it's not smart enough to know where it is mounted. It will work just fine as long as it is in the system somewhere it can get pressure.


More parts counter intelligence at work.
