    yup...

    Dark green for the temp sender,goes to drivers side head --tan wire for the oil pressure switch...both come from the firewall bulkhead connector that bolts to the fuse box,and then go into the harness...:crazy:

    Um....

    The "Firewall bulkhead connector" is simply the back half of the fuse box--there is a bolt that holds the underhood harness and the fuse box together,that you'd unscew if you wanted to pull the nose off..its located just to the right of the steering colum...where just about every other wire in the truck is!... --might be one or two small rubber grommets with wires coming out of the firewall too,for gas tank and heater wires..:crazy:

    Im not exactly sure what you are asking. Both wires (pressure sender and temp sender) are coming from the drivers side engine compartment. They are going to be wrapped up with the mess of wires that gous through the firewall below the dash next to the steering column. From there they go to various locations (dash gauges, fuse box, etc...)

    If you know the colors and the location, trace them. You might need to move the fuse box or some other things, but it should be pretty straitforward. Try putting some more light under there, you might not be seeing it.
