Interesting. Looks like itís pinched behind the body of the oil switch. 
Twenty years from now you'll be more disappointed by the things you didn't do, than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the tradewinds in your sails.

I replaced the sending unit today. I removed the alternator just so I could see a little of what I was doing. Job took about an hour. I got lucky getting the screw started that holds the wire on the end of the unit. Big old fingers in a small space with no visual. Anyway started engine and no leak so hopefully that was it. Some pictures..
