Luis, et al,

The oil temp sensor is located on the oil pump, front bottom of engine,
(right side).  It also contains/incorporates the pressure relief valve, and
other small "flying" pieces...  Look for the big (~ 1" )hex looking thingie.

For those with Mr Bentley available, look on page 17.4.  The pressure relief
valve is replaced by a temp sender (gotta use your imagination at times w/Mr
Bentley; see vacuum pump on engine thread...).  There should be a black wire
going to it which turns into a green/black by the time it gets to the temp

Good hunting,
