Need help installing oil pressure gauge

Installed a 4 pillar pod last weekend and can't figure how to measure low oil pressure. I read somewhere that near the oil filter there are ports that you can mount a sensor to. If so, what is the thread size for that port? The sensor has 1/8 threads. Any insight appreciated. This is for a 2001 7.3 thanks
