Oil Presure Sender - conversion to linear from switch

I'm having problems with an intermittent oil pressure indication
on a 99 Explorer Sport with a 4.0L SOHC, at cold start up.

Rather than just replace the pressure switch sensor it seems attractive
to make the gauge in the dash a real linear indicator as suggested in
theses earlier posts;

http://groups-beta.google.com/group/rec.autos.makers.ford.explorer/browse_thread/thread/46706ab95d9f44fe?q=ford+"oil+pressure+gauge"+modification&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&rnum=1

The part they suggest has a threaded stud as it's connection.

I'm trying to find a part number for a linear sender with the same
connector as the stock switch. My local dealer has the referenced
linear sender which has a screw terminal, and the stock switch but
was unwilling to look for the linear sender with the correct connector.

Anybody know the Ford or MotorCraft P/N?

Let me guess. You get 0 pressure, then after a few seconds, it comes up to
normal? There's a TSB on that one. It's the sender.
