2000 3.0 oil pressure sender?

I bought a oil pressure gauge to go in my Ranger. It's an electrical type gauge, because I didn't really like the idea of hot oil inside the cab. A breech in the system would spell a new interior very fast if things went haywire.

Anyway, I'm having a tough time finding the oil pressure sender on the engine so I can remove it, and put in the sender that came with my gauge. Can anyone please guide me to it?

Also, I don't really want a "dead gauge" on my instrument cluster, so is there a way I could maybe put a tee fitting in there and thread the sendor for the instrument cluster gauge and thread the sender for my other gauge into it? So I could essentially have "two" oil pressure gauges?

The 3.0 sending switch is in the block behind the passenger side cylinder head. You probably won't be able to see it from above - look in through the PS wheel well with the rubber splash shield pushed out of the way.

I too am putting on a dual gauge system . I got a galvanized 1/4 " pipe Tee from home Depot and a 1/4" pipe to mount my 2nd sensor . I know it's 1/4 because I took the Tee into autozone and had them get me a sensor and screwed it in. They were very helpful.
They know I do weird stuff so they accomodate me. hahaha It's in a pain in the a** location. haven't got it installed yet.
