Ride: BA XR6

Location: sydney
NSW, Australia

car is a BA xr6 non turbo
ive brought a after market oil pressure gauge to install, and ive been told but lots of people and various websites to get a T piece adapter with the part number 230032, any way gauge comes in and sure enough it fits into this T piece adapter, very very very tight fit, but it fits in. any way after a very long time i finally get the factory sender out of the block (im using a combination of 19mm ring and normal spanner), anyway i go to test screw in the factory oil pressure sender to this T piece and the bloody factory one is significantly bigger then the input size of the T piece. ive used calipers on the factory oil pressure and its 17mm wide screw. have i pulled out the wrong sensor?? or is the T piece WAY off size.

other info (it may or may not be wrong, tell me if it is i may have pulled out the wrong sender)
-factory sender is 19mm nut with a 17mm width thread.
-thread size on the T piece adapter is 13mm wide
-above the oil filter their is 3 sensors or things that go into the block, if u drew a line between them all it would look like a triangle, the oil sensor is the bottom one closest to the front of the car
ive got two photos taken below of the sensor i pulled out.
is this even the oil pressure sender because to me it looks more like a oil temperature sender

Oil pressure sensor would have a hole in the end.

That doesnt look like it.

You want the one closest to the filter I think.

this is the closes i can see to the oil filter, a workshop manual said its a oil pressure switch, and oil came out of the hole when i took it out, but yer as u guys said it should have a hole in the top which it clearly doesnt, ive got a feeling its a oil temp switch, ive got hsc exam today so i cant check it out but tomorrow ill have a closer look
