Varies with the application, many SBC'S utilize an oil cooler where CM
placed the sender just North of the adapter.
Have a great one!

On the engines with an oil cooler they don't have the pressure switch
up near the distributor? but down by the oil filter adapter? If
thats so, then I stand corrected and my last msg. was incorrect.
thanks for the info
No, you aren't wrong. It makes no difference whether there is
an oil cooler or not. Small block chevy engines have always had
the sending units either at the rear of the block, left side, right
behind the intake manifold rear sealing line, or above the oil
filter section of the block, left side, rear of the block. For the
last number of years, it's always up top at the rear of the block.
Bingo! That is EXACTLY where it was!
I had to take the cover off the top of the air intake to see it
sitting below the distributor. It actually lays horizontally and
threads into an adaptor that is vertical to the engine block. The
electrical conection (3 prong) is hidden by the distributor and you
have to feel the lock tab with your hands to get it off. What a pain
in the butt! This thing couldn't have more harder to get at.
Although, a deep-well 1-1/6" socket does the trick to get it
Thanks for the description as to where this thing was located!
