Hello James

The best option is to use a Tee piece on the mounting hole for the current oil pressure switch on the engine.
To arrange this I'd say 1st remove the pressure switch and measure the thread, its most likely to be a metric thread with a sealing compound or washer

once you have the thread details of the sender and you know the thread of whatever gauge sender you're planning to use then contact these guys:

as they carry a large range of hose fittings and adpators
