Here's a shot of the car in my garage. It's still a little messy from the feverish pace that we'd had working on the Boxster project car.


Here's the engine compartment with the air cleaner disconnected and tucked out of the way. The oil pressure sender is way in the back, of course.


I started by carefully disconnecting the throttle position switch. It has a tiny spring clip that would be lost forever in the engine if I wasn't very carefully removing it.


There are some vacuum hoses that are in the way here. I take pictures so that everyone can see what's going on, but also so that I can refer to them later on when I need to put the darn thing back together.


Here's a shot of a bunch of hoses connected. I need to get these out of the way to remove the oil pressure sender.


Need to take this hose off as well, as it's connected to the top. This will give me some working room.


Okay, now I can pull this vacuum canister-type device out from the inners of the manifold.


This fuel line was in the way when I replaced the oil pressure idiot light switch. So, at least it was loose and easy to disconnect. I had to push this out of the way to get to the oil pressure sender.


I think it's pretty cool that all of the hoses say "959" on them.


With some of the hoses removed, I can see the top of the sender. The red switch in the back is the one I've already replaced previously (didn't fix the problem).
