Good luck on getting a craftsman tool replaced, I’ve been trying for two months with no success.‍♂️♂️♂️
Email them directly. They mailed me a box of everything I needed replaced at no cost. This is what they wanted.

I had an 80 K20 w/ 350 and that little fuel pump rod intersect bolt fell out and I lost 4 qt of oil at highway speed in 30 miles. Would not leak at idle, just under load. Made a mess.

A bit late but ~ the Oil Pressure Sending Unit is at the back on the driver's side, if it is leaking it will cause a heck of a leak when the motor is running and can look like a leak from the driver's side valve cover.

Okay I'm sure this is solved just trying to save someone else from looking for the oil pressure sender, it is behind the distributor. Some but not all sbc have an oil pressure switch on the block where pmac said afiak that switch is only used as a switch for the choke heater.
