94 1st Gen Lightning Oil gauge, sender issues?

Hey Y'all...noticed my yellow check engine light is on and oil pressure gauge inside the truck is not working anymore...truck runs great, so I'm thinking it's the sender or the dash side...not sure which...anyone else have this happen? Seems to be somewhat common on the 94's
lookin to replace the oil sender on the front cover first, and the oil cooler lines are in the way to get the dang thing out...

Was in process of removing the cooler from the oil filter mount when I stopped due to no gasket in hand...

SO, called Napa and they told me it was on backorder from manufacturer???
Anyone know the availability or PN of this gasket?

Also, a p/n to get the lower radiator to cooler hose while I'm there.
Thanks for the help!

You can remove the oil cooler assembly if you want; just purchase a lower radiator hose from a 90 F-series (think I went with an F-250). Just remove the center bolt from the assembly with an allen wrench and then you can go from an FL-820S to a larger FL-1A oil filter; it'll spin right on the block.

My factory gauge is also dead, even after I replaced the sending unit, however, I never did get a check engine light. I have a mechanical gauge in the cab now though so all is well.
