    Replace the stock sensor behind the alternator. It's only used to put an idiot light on your dash when it goes <5PSI or something stupid like that, at which point, it's telling you time to buy a new SB.

    ^^^That

    The "galley" plug is located under the alternator. The alternator has to be taken off. You need a size 24 deep socket to take the stock plug off.

    That's the one I used when installing my oil pressure guage ... it's been two years now and no issues what so every. Hint: when you take the alternator off - mark where the tensioning bolt is on it's screw with a marker. That way when you re-install the alternator you do not have to worry about tensioning the belt. If you line it back up with the marker mark ... you should have the same belt tension as before you took it off.
