Default Sender for 2.3 Mechanical Gauge Help?

Okay, so here's the deal. I'm tired of the idiot gauge in my truck and I would actually like to have a working oil pressure gauge to go off of. I already have the gauge, but I'm trying to figure out which sender I need to swap my stock one with so it will function properly. Has anyone attempted this swap? I checked around the forum first, but it just seems like the PS60 seems too big. Any help is appreciated!

What I've seen people do on here is get a adapter plate that goes between the filter and filter housing or t off the oem sending unit. To add the one for the mechanical gauge.

So basically I could just screw the tee into the block, and attach both senders to it? Seems easy
