351M Mystery Sensor

What, pray tell, is the sensor in this photo? I'm assuming it's oil pressure.

Re: 351M Mystery Sensor

I find it hard to tell the location of switch with picture so close .May be a picture a bit back would help ? Some other members might be able to recognise better than me though .

Never, never, never give up.

Re: 351M Mystery Sensor

This is the back of the motor, with the air cleaner showing on the left, the heater core box showing on the right, and the throttle/cruise control linkages at the bottom. I can get a wider view if still needed.

Re: 351M Mystery Sensor

Oddly enough, I bought a replacement oil pressure sender, but got confusing info on the location, so it's still sitting around. Based on the poor info I found, this seems like what it should be. When I have a chance I'll pull that whatever out and compare it to the sender I purchased, see what I got. I think it might be bad, anyway.

Re: 351M Mystery Sensor

If that's a Modified, I thought the oil pressure switch was below the head on the drivers side near the front, similarly placed as the Windsor. Coolant temp?

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Re: 351M Mystery Sensor

Coolant temp is on the thermostat housing. And I thought the oil pressure sender was on the side, too, until I saw this little guy on top. I haven't seen anything connected to the sides.
