    Default Oil pressure sensor

    The oil pressure guage doesn't work in my 92 K1500. The guy I bought it from said that it needs an oil pressure sensor. I'm totally fine with replacing a cheap sensor but I can not find it. Anybody know where it is? It is a 350 by the way. Thanks.

    On the rear of the engine near the distributor. Here is a so so picture of it. It is #5. Kind of a small picture, might save it to your computer, then zoom in on it.

    Before you go to the trouble of removing the sensor take a jumper wire or a paper clip and have someone ground the sensor wire momentarily. Your gauge should go to high instantly. This tests the gauge and wire to the gaug. If the needle won't move then your problem is not in the sensor.
