oil pressure sensor for 6.0

I am getting ready to install my new ISSPRO gauges on my 6.0, and I am having a hard time finding out were the oil pressure sensor hooks up. On my 7.3 it was easy to find, but on the 6.0 I dont have a clue were it hooks up to. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]

Re: oil pressure sensor for 6.0

Look down in the engine valley beside the oil filter housing. You will see two sensors screwed into the top of the oil filter base/oil cooler assembly. The sensor you are after has a single wire connector with a brown/orange wire. The other sensor is the engine oil temp.

Re: oil pressure sensor for 6.0

From what I understand there aren't any ports to tap a sender for an aftermarket gauge into. The EOP switch which operates your idiot light dash gauge is buried behind the oil filter. I saw where a few have drilled and tapped the top of the oil filter cannister and put the sender there. To each their own. If someone knows of an easy port to install their sender I haven't read about it yet. Good luck.

Re: oil pressure sensor for 6.0

Forgive me for my ignorance but couldn't you adapt a t fitting "without restriction" into the pressure side of the turbo oil hose?

Re: oil pressure sensor for 6.0

See Page 13 (click here) slide 18, item #5 of the 6.0L Bible, EOP Switch. It's not a sensor, it just a switch and it's located behind the oil filter towards the passenger's side.

My understanding is that the EOP switch in a straight threaded type with an o-ring. If you find a tee adaptor for it, post it and let the rest of us know where you got it.

I bought two pieces from parker.
4-A0G5JG5 (the is a T-fitting. Two female dash 4 o-rings and a male dash 4 o-ring)
0507-4-2 (this is a male dash 4 o-ring to 1/8" NPT female, most senders are 1/8" NPT)

The T-fitting has to be modified for it to work. When you are threading the T into the engine you can see it hit the base of the oil filter. So I took a die grinder and ground down the interference on the T. It still barely hit but it still threaded in fine. I stopped the T so when I installed the aftermarket sender it was running under the boost tube on the passenagers side. Then thread the factory sender in the top. I can take pic if someone what them.

Re: oil pressure sensor for 6.0

elkcreekwater,
Any chance you can post some pictures? And maybe elaborate on the T-fitting(s) you used? I'm not sure what the reference to "parker" is (possibly a parts store near you?).

I'm hoping to install an additional oil pressure sender into the tap where the Ford EOP using a T too. I'm just not sure what threads I need to use. And, I think maybe I need to extend a pipe up from the base of oil filter area (where Ford EOP screws in) to be able to have enough room for my aftermarket sender.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
