oil pressure sensor on 75TS ???

Hi there, the oil pressure guage on my 75TS doesn't seem to work, although the oil warning light does. I wanted to check the pressure sensor but to be honest don't know where to look.
As I stand at the front of the car looking in the engine bay I've found an oil pressure switch with a single contact (so this can't do pressure can it?) down on the right, and I've found a double contact electronic dip stick kind of thing on the left.

Is it either of these, or is there something else? is this a common fault? what is it normally? clocks? wiring? etc, etc.

Many thanks for any help.

Re: oil pressure sensor on 75TS ???

OK since nobody else has replied. On the 164TS it is on the back of the engine, below head, at the clutch end. It is about 1.5 ins dia.and is just above the level and close to the top edge of the clutch bell-housing. Only one wire coming out. Make sure the connection is clean. They have a habit of failing. They leak oil internally and can often be cured by drilling a small hole to let the leaked oil escape.
