On my 1.9D (hyd. head) there was the oil pressure switch, for the idiot light, on the 
head.  I replaced it with a dual output VDO sender that has both a switch and an analog 
sender for a gauge.  Screwed right into the hole and the switch drives the dash light just 
fine.  I have not got the gauge installed yet as I need to fab up a panel for it.
