I noticed that on my 85 V6 block that I removed, the oil pressure sending unit is right next to the oil filter but on the engine I'm using as a replacement, it has moved away from the filter via a tube and is upright on the side of the motor.
I was told when I bought the motor that it cam out of an 86. In an effort to date the engine is this correct? Is that the year that this modification was made to the location of the sending unit?

The 2.8 to 2.8 swap has
begun.

If im not mistaken its by the oil filter unless you have air conditioning. My 87 is right by the oil filter and i dont have air conditioning but the 86 i have is up higher like your talking about and it has air . Hope this helps

Milton is correct, non-AC cars have the sender located in the block next to the oil filter, and A/C equipped cars have them located remotely up near the top of the engine.

The only year anything changed on the 2.8 oil pressure sender was in 88, but that was just an updated pressure sender and weather pack connector, the locations remained the same there.

Lol Oreif, you posted as I was typing , I gotta get rid of the 2 finger method

Thanks, that would explain it. My 85 is factory delete air, and I had to remove the air conditioning compressor, since I didn't need it, on the replacement motor.
