Oil pressure sending unit #2

i have a 19080 cj with what appears to be a line feed oil pressure unit coming from the dash
the 73 i6 i put in it has what appears to be an electrical oil pressure ( nipple ? ) at the front of the mototr.
is this oil temp () aka engine temp ????
please help clear up this misunderstanding?

Re: Oil pressure sending unit #2

The older (late '70's) I-6 heads had the (water) temperature sender in the front of the head pointing foreward.
Later it was moved to the rear driver's side of the head and points up.
The oil (pressure) sender remained in the same place ... passener side, rear side of the block.
Both were always electical style systems from my knowledge of this era and none had 'mechanical' style sender/gauges that employ tubes.
