Default 6.0 oil sending unit location

Ok guys mt oil hand buried on me. Mechanic told me is was oil sending unit but by the time I got it to him it was working again so I took it home. It started dropping more often now when Rpm gets low. So I bought one at part store and have googled and youtubed til my fingers blead. Where is the oil sending unit located on my 2005 6.0? Help please I'm stumped? Also called oil pressure switch. That's what it's called in the 6.0 bible.

it is located right next to your oil filter housing, more to the back side of it, there is also a oil temp sender right next to the oil supply tube for turbo.

I just replaced mine as it blew a hole in the top of it somehow. Its actually behind the oil filter close to and almost under the turbo. You gotta take off your air filter tubes to get to it. Sits on top of the motor. Let me find my pics and Ill post them if I can.

yeah. forgot that one. do both makes it a little easier to get to. unplug harness on top. I think it takes a 17mm socket. But not sure. make sure area around it is clean.
