Threaded lifting ring rod

Top cross plank behind the back seat top (Port side). both engine stringers around the engine. Pull off the white piece of upholstery to the left of the gauge cluster and it will be on the back. CL -21- xxxx.

Re: Oil Pressure Sending Unit

C-3" face- 60 degree sweep (0-60)

353-Y is and old SW number.

Ohms should be 33-240

give it a look
