Oil pressure sender not working after head gasket replacement procedure. Best guess, Ground or loose wire. Where is the sender located?

Thought about peeking under the cover while it's in storage. Like my anti-theft device parked behind it?

Crazy warm day here. Had to drop the top and do a short ride. Enough to warm everything up. It was about 70 deg. So T-shirt was fine. Snow is melting away.

Drove down 90 miles to Scottsdale AR dealer to see the new Giulia. The dealer was having a rsvp reception to show the cars. I didn't know what to expect. There was a huge crowd there with everyone looking ina dn sitting in the new cars. Out in the parking lot were a few Alfa's from the local club. Overall it appeared to be a happy crown with some of the taking test drives in the new car. Nice way to spend a day. I should have some photo's coming up soon I took at the event.
