Yeah I forgot about that sensor hahaha. If you run your car out of oil I have no sympathy for ya(not directed at you).

But yes that's the slot for the sensor

Thanks for the information. I am planning on upgrading my oil pan when I get new heads/cams in the future.

I don't think so. When I installed my Road Race pan the there is a dedicated bung for the dipstick, the other bung is designed for a temp gauge.

You may be able to use it, but I don't know if the size/thread is correct.

pushrod BTW

This seems plausible. If that bung is made for a temp guage it could be possible that the oil level sensor can fit.

What did you do with your oil level sensor I know the 94-96's came with them since you installed the road race pan?

My level sensor was not threaded. ..... if it is threaded and you don't want to run a gauge just throw a bolt in it

My pan came with the NPT plugs for both bungs. I do not have a oil sensor installed, never bothered with it in the race car.

Something to think about .. even if the stock level sensor fits in there, the 5.0 level sensor is made to mount horizontaly. The Canton hole is vertical, would it even work? I don't think the 5.0 would the more I think about it. My wire is not connected to anything and I do not get a oil light in the dash. Not sure on the 4.6 tho.

The 4.6L oil level sender is vertical on the driver side of the pan so that is why I thought that bung was made for it, maybe....maybe not.
