A mechanical oil pressure gauge does not have nor require a sending unit. Plumb the gauges pressure line straight into the engines block where the previous sending unit was.

It sounds like you are trying to install a mechanical oil pressure gauge, which means you don't need a sender. You are looking for a kit with small plastic or copper tubing, and the tubing compression fittings for the engine block and the back of the gauge (gauge should have the fitting already). Make sure the tubing does not touch, or come too close to your exhaust when you route it.
