ok, I could swear that the oil pressure sender is allways near the distributor on a small block. I need to change mine to the roadmaster sender, but can not seem to find the damn thing. I had the flashlight out and everything. I could not see very well due to the distributor cap and plug wires, but I felt around and I swear its not there. Where is it? My cheapo repair manual says nothing about it.

If it's like my '88 chevy truck, it'll be right above the oil filter like BBODYLTZN said, mounted on a 90 degree fitting. Behind the distributor, there SHOULD be a oil pressure switch for the ECM, to shut down the engine if oil pressure is lost. A little trivia for you.
