oil sending unit ????

Does anyone know where the oil pressure unit is... I have read all the other post and still cannot find it? All I see is one that has a red wire to it, not green.

Its a 2001 ranger XLT 4.0 V6 SOHC

I looked on the drives side, through the tire area, under it.... I cant find it

Does anyone have a pic

3.0 sender is screwed into the block behind the passenger side cylinder head.

4.0 sender is screwed into the driver side of the block, near the front, below the A/C compressor. Color code is green/white.

4.0 showing the hole in the block w/o the sending switch installed:
