Default To the local's who've done a gauge install: Where is the front oil gallery plug?

I'm finally ready to do my gauge install. I've got a VDO EGT/Oil Pres./Oil Temp. I've got all the senders, and I've got the stainless tube for remotely locating the oil pressure gauge (I'm going to use the oil gallery under the IC for the pressure gauge).

Anyway, I want to install the temp gauge in the front oil gallery that the stock (and useless) oil pressure sender is using. I know many people have installed their senders there, and I was just wondering where exactly the stock pressure sensor is so I can take it out and put my VDO sender in...

Thanks all!

-Sean

Hand tools will work, so will air tools . It will be easier if you remove the alternator, but it's something you can take apart with an open ended wrench.

I think I'll try the hand tools route without removing the alternator. I'm not feeling that adventurous :-)

Thanks all!

Thanks all!
Were you able to pull it off without removing alternator ?
I'm looking to install my Oil Pressure sender as well. And hopefully use the existing plug there.

How difficult is to remove and reinstall alternator btw ? Just a couple bolts , loosen belt, and remember to mark where the tension bolt right ?

12mm for belt tensioner top and bottom. Remove bottom bolt. Remove top bolt. 12mm to remove 12V+ on top of alternator. One electrical clip on top of alternator. One 12mm bolt ont he left of alternator going horizontal. Don't drop the capture nut on the backside. Alternator is off. Wiggle/shimmy alternator up.. tight fit on the bushings.

FYI... mechanical oil pressure senders work with a T; Electrical needs a T also and needs to be pointed toward the front of the car.
