Where's the oil sending unit?

I need to find the oil sending unit on my 05 6.0L. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I've checked THE BIBLE and can't find any reference to the sending unit. Thanks.

Re: Where's the oil sending unit?

Its easy to confuse the sending unit with the pressure switch. The sender is on the firewall side of the oil filter. The switch is left or toward the passenger side. There threaded different too. The pressure switch is some hybrid thread no one I know has every seen. Pressure sender is #4 "hydralic" thread.

Re: Where's the oil sending unit?

Sorry, but I am a little confused as to the terminology being used here. I know where the oil pressure switch is located (see above link to Bible part #5), but where and what is the oil sending unit located?

Thanks,

Re: Where's the oil sending unit?

Thanks Wekiwa. Found it.

I'm thinking about tapping into the sending unit with a "T" fitting to pickup a supply for bypass oil filtration. I'm a little concerned about the ECM getting accurate oil pressure readings after installing the "T". Any thoughts?

stripped threads

I have a 2005 F250 6.0 that when I went to change the oil presure sending unit I found the threads inside the plate are stripped. Any suggestions?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe that the ECM monitors low-pressure oil pressure. The sender is simply an on-off switch that activates when it reaches 7 psi and directly connects to the oil gauge on the dash.
