Thumbs down oil pressure sending unit

Hi,I have just bought a 1976 dodge power wagon with a bb 400.The truck runs awsome,but the oil pressure gauge doesnt move when its running.So I went looking for the sending unit,and cant find it.Where is it?

No I found it,but it works.So I pulled the gauge cluster and the gauge is bad,the fuel gauge is also bad,so I am going to try to find the whole cluster as a package and replace it-Now off subject does a 1942 ****** mb count as a mopar because I have one of those too?Thanks everybody!

The sending unit turned out to be on the back of the block by the intake manifold. Thanks for the help. The truck is a 1976 dodge powerwagon adventurer with a 400 big block and a 4 speed.I bought the truck off of a guy for a buck,it didn't run,no spark.So I replaced the ballast resistor,ignition module,coil,and it ran good except I had no oil pressure.Since I have found the port where the unit goes i have hooked up an old school manual unit that I have and the motor runs at idle with about 35 pounds.
