I think my Oil Pressure switch is leaking... either from the body or where its threading into the block.
I wanted to remove it and check, but am struggling..
The head of the dang thing is visible above the starter, but no flats on it, and the head is larger than where i assume the nut/flats are..
I cant seem to reach or see how it comes off!
Am I missing something?

Give it a try first.

Good luck.

Just did this myself. Best to get it from the rear of the engine where you don't have all the Spica piping to contend with. Use a shorty open end wrench. You won't be able to get any hand leverage in that small space, so use a big screwdriver to lever it. Once you break the torque on the threads, it'll unscrew easily by hand.
