If that sender is the one cut off at the top of the picture for oil temperature, you'll get a somewhat inaccurate reading. Where you have now you are at a dead end, no oil is flowing by it. You should get it in oil pan. That's where the real temperature is. Also as a suggestion, you'll want to remove that steel block and screw that oil pressure sender directly into that brass fitting in the filter head. There is a good chance with that much wheight on the brass fitting, vibration will fatigue it and it'll snap.

That should be ok. But somehow you need to anchor those senders or it could be a potential problem.

Cuda I'm not talking about trans sender, I'm talking about oil pressure senders. There's is a lot of overhang on that 45 deg fitting coming out of oil filter. At some point in time, not now but maybe next year or the year after, it has the potential of breaking.

I had one break off twice on my Suburban because someone had added a 45 degree elbow to provide accessibility. I replaced the first one with an elbow from an auto parts store. It came off the wall, nat looked up as a replacement. If I hadn't been watching the gauge, it could have been catastrophic to my engine. Asked a friend who is an avid Chevy man, and he said that they never used the elbow on any engines that he knew of. I removed remnants of elbow and screwed sender directly into block. No problems since.
