Default oil pressure sensor location

Anyone know where the oil pressure sensor on a 89 2.3 is? Having problems trying to find it. There is just to much stuff in the way under the intake to locate it.
The gauge has stoped working and I need to see if it is the sensor, gauge, fuse,or I just lost all oil pressure together.

that is the gage sensor, the computer sensor is on the top of the intake manifold by the fuel injectors.

Are these locations the same for a '91 2.3L? I just bought a oil pressure and water temp gauge kit and am looking to hook them up.

Thanks!
