If anyone has actually done one of these in a 8.1l I would like to hear about it!

Definetly sucks to get to.
Tim73, after the connector is disconnected the guage will go to 80 and back down again when first started. Maybe you connector is loose.
givin up for now its getting too dark. At least the truck runs I was afraid it had the low oil pressure switch in it but that doesnt appear to be the case.

I have been putting it off hoping it would be something else. I have popeye fore arms and they just dont fit in there. Trust me if it was even a little easier it would have been done long ago.
what I am facing now is that the sockets brand new and its a really tight fit on the replacement and since its not a normal shped socket I cant quite get it on good to the old sender. I have it on and I put some torque on it and its slipping off defenitly dont want to round it. My last effort I had it on good and it wouldnt budge. I have broke many things off in the past and this being brass makes me a little more careful. If it breaks its a huge problem to say the least.

However I spent the last 2+ hours trying to get the new one in I just cannot get it to start. I can get my hand in and feel the hole and guide the sensor down on the socket and extension. I even screwed the old and new ones into a oil pressure adapter I have thats the same thread so I know the threads are ok. The part is a AC delco and I cross referenced its fine. The biggest issue I am having is that the fuel lines run over there and there is a big fat harness right over where it has to go. From pictures of the motor it appears to go in straight I had a swivel on it so I couldnt tell.
Is it a straight shot to start or is it at an angle. If at a angle which way? I might have to pull the drivers valve cover to get my arm in there better.
Gave up for tonight its like 39 and started to rain.
BTW mine was brass and I am pretty sure its all original.
