I'm in the midst of installing a mechanical oil pressure guage on my '69 w/327.

I need confirmation on the exact location for mounting the sending unit. I'm pretty sure it's at the rear of the motor, beside the distributor. Can anyone confirm this???

I put mine on the driver side of the distributer.

Either on the drivers side of the distributor or down by the oil filter. If your using a big can type of sending unit and there is not much room up top you might find more room down by the filter.

Thanks alot guys!
I got it all together now.

Just one more question...what type of psi should it be reading at normal operating ranges?? I took it for a little drive this morning, and it was reading around 30psi at highway speeds. My water Temp was around 180-200, and my voltmeter was up at 15-16 volts.

Are these good numbers or what?

thats about what mine is, but I have about 50 PSI @ 3K rpm, it goes to 35-40 at idle. Voltage is about right, mine jumps to 15 or so cruising, remember its a volt meter, not amperage so it will rise as the alternater puts out more current to charge the battery and run your accessorites and distributer.
