Is the oil pressure sender on the EB 5.0L the same as the EA-AU 4.0L sender?

Christ, here's a can of worms :oops:

Ive asked the question before with no avail. I've dug up some info on the senders used by the Mustangs with these engines.

(The mustang 5.0L HO one:)

I need to verify but think its a 1/4" NPT thread - pretty standard stuff.

BTW: seeing as you've (prolly) got the engine out, can ya tell me what size socket you use to get it off? Have a feeling the standard switch needs a 1 1/4" deepy...

wanna come up with an intelligent reason why ford would do that?

as far as my VDO sender test sheet goes, the EF/EL had different resistance values for the oil pressure sender compared to the EA-ED, but then the application guide says EA-EL use the same sender..... go figure

doesnt say anything about the V8's tho, but i'd assume they use the same sender

They use the same dashboard so i dont see why resistance values would be different.

Prolly more an issue of making sure you have the right size thread.
