1953 Special oil press. sending unit location?

Recommended Posts

I am restoring a customer's 1953 Special with the 263 straight eight. The car came to me with a bare block and all of the parts in boxes. I've installed the cannister oil filter unit and its incoming and outgoing metal tubes, but I cannot figure out where the oil pressure gauge tube screws into the engine. Can someone with a 263 straight eight help me or attach a photo? My '49 248 and my '50 320 engines are of no help--they are different from this 263. Any assistance greatly appreciated.
