Question oil sending unit

I was looking for my oil sending unit when I relized its not on the back of the block. I'm so use to the big blocks that I don't know where it is. I was told to look at my oil filler cap, look to the left and I'll see a long hex with a bell shape on it. Is it suppose to look like a big block sending unit or smaller? I have a 1987 crown vic with a EFI 5.0. I don't even see it on my 85 or 81 crown vics. Thanks for any help.

I'll try to take a look for you 2-night. I have a 88 5.0 at home.

Re: oil sending unit

Sorry for not replying faster. I found it. Its by the oil filter, not filler. Just was one of those moments I didn'y have my glasses on. I got all my gauges hooked up today along with finding a few things that caused sqeaks and raddles. I feel much happier with a oil pres. gauge :) I hate those idiot lights. I took them all out and covered the holes with black plastic. I like the look.

Sorry for taking so long too ... 'vette on the brain.
Yup - in front of the filter.
However - my older 302 in the Mustang circa '79 - has the hex tube coming out on the passenger side - as mentioned above (if memory serves me).

Re: oil sending unit

I have another question for who ever wants to takle it. Why did they leave the fuel pump opening on the timing chain open on EFI systems? Almost looks like oil was coming out of it. I milled up a plate and put it over the opening but why leave it open? Couldn't ford just remove it entirely? Also why did they leave the that bearing in there that drives the timing chain fuel pump? I found it all ready for a fuel pump when I pulled a 1989 302 that had a EFI system. Maybe another brain fart from ford?

Re: oil sending unit

well the only think i can think of right now is that the car came with a carb set up from the factory and who ever had it before had converted over to an EFI system and forgot to cover up the fuel pump opening. Because my car is stock with the EFI and i do not have a hole for the fuel pump and there is no patch work or cover where the fuel pump would go.

Re: oil sending unit

The car come stock with EFI in 87, I checked the vin # to make sure. I talked to the ford grage over here and he said its because it was cheaper to leave it open and the car could not produce enough pressure to shoot oil out of it. Its the same on my 85 vic but I under stand that, it was new for 302. I cut off the fuel pump hole on a new 302 engine I have setting in my garage. Filled it in with aluminum. I got another question too. Are 302 still be produce in one form or another by ford? I know the 351 is arond in the V10 and the 460 was killed off. Has it be come that a 302 is a big block and the 289 is the small block now a days?
