The oil pressure sending unit is NOT on the passenger side at the rear of the engine. It's located on the drivers side almost parallel with the oil filter, either rearward of the oil filter or towards the front of the block. There are two identical threaded oil galley access points along the outside of the lifter valley and either of them could be used for the sending unit although I've only seen them in the rear location next to the oil filter on the forty or so 300/4.9L engines I've worked on.
Dark thanks for the update as I am sure it will help someone.

As for passenger side / drivers side it is best to say left or right and this is ALWWAYS when sitting it the car/truck.
I say this as we have some members from down under and they drive from the wrong side ... the right side so when you say drivers side they would be looking on the wrong side of the car/truck.

We have the same issue in the AMC world as down under also imported AMC's and they drive from the right side also.
