No clue personally. That being said....wherever you got those photos from, I'm sure the owner didn't simply drill into the side of the head, tap it for a sender, and wire it up just so it looked like it would work.

If I were to "add" an oil pressure sending unit, I wouldn't drill the head or block. I'd get one of these and replace one of the banjo bolts that feeds oil to the turbo with it. Simply thread a sending unit on.

Plus you can probably smoke your reefers with it.

There is actually a bolt sitting in the exact spot of the head where he installed the sender that's why im really interested.. but okay im still waiting to hear from this but that seems legit what banjo would be the best to use for that?

I just googled "banjo bolt 1/8NPT female" or something like that. You need a banjo bolt of the correct thread and length for the banjo you are going to replace it....but it needs to have that kind of female thread.

I think I may have also googled Banjo Bolt oil pressure gauge. The thread on must senders is 1/8" pipe thread.....NPT.

Take the bolt out and put an oil pressure gauge in, then come back to us with results.

I'd put a gauge in the stock location. That would be on the back side of the engine block. Take the factory sender out (worthless with a gauge) and put the sender in that location. You can get creative and plumb both but why? No need for a dummy light when you have a real reading. I used to have a electric gauge from Oreilly (can't remember the brand) that could also run the stock dummy light.
