1993 F150 I6 300ci aux mech oil pressure/H2O temp gauge install

Need help. I recently purchased a '93 F150 SuperCab w/ I6, 4x4, 5spd,
156k miles. I want to install an auxilliary mechanical oil pressure
gauge. I bought the Summit Racing dual OP/WT guage set (SUM-G2924) and
hope to install it soon. My desire for this is that approx 8 yrs ago I
owned a '77 Scout Traverler with a 4cyl (196ci), the motor later died.
I replaced it with the 345ci of that era. One day the stock oil
pressure guage died. I mechanic took a quick look at it and indeed it
was the guage/sender, not the lack of oil pressure. I then bought the
Summit dual OP/WT guage set for it and the install was easy, oil
pressure tap was on the side of the engine block, H2O sensor install
was on the top by the carburator.

I don't have a service manual yet for it and I want to get it installed
soon. Where on this I6 engine can I install the NTP tap for the oil
pressure, and for that matter where can I install the water temp
sensor?

Thanks in advance.

I have an older version of that engine, but I'm thinking the locations
of each sender would still be the same.

Oil sending unit is on the drivers side of the engine. Look for the
wire attached to the sender just below the head and toward the rear of
the engine.

Water temp sending unit is on the opposite side of the engine. Again
trace the wire to the sending unit.

Both my gauges are the mechanical type. I used a copper line for the
oil gauge, not the plastic junk that came with the gauge. Installing the
water temp unit can be a bit messy. Have a 'plug' ready to keep the
flow of coolant down. Doing this installation when the engine is cool,
is the way to go. If either of your gauges are electrical, make sure
you use a conductive tape or a copper sealant on the threads.

It's a smart move, what you are doing.
