You don't.

It's for an "idiot light" or electric gauge, NO copper tubing involved.

You can use a "Packard 56 series female connector and a matching "cover" to connect an electrical WIRE to it.



Note that the connector is flipped over from the way it would be inserted in it's cover/"body"/insulator.

ONE source for the connector.

Great. Easy enough. Thank you. I was confused because there was an oil line type coming off the gauge behind the dash. Maybe no one ever hooked the new sensor up with a new gauge.

I'm not familiar with a 5500 model, does it have a factory oil pressure gauge or has someone added a aftermarket gauge.
The sender in the photo is for a factory warning light that is in the gauge cluster on most all ford tractors, does the 5500 have the cluster

It has the factory gauge in the dash still. There are individual
gauges on the dash.
Where does the oil pressure hook to? I found the tube and
flare nut just hanging sort of near that sensor. Ive got
manuals but it doesnt really say where the oil pressure line
goes.
Thanks

I'm assuming you don't have a oil pressure warning light
The mechanical gauge's tube and feral connect to a fitting that goes in the same place that electric sender is at, you need to remove the sender and get the correct line fitting.
