Oil Pressure Switch Replacement

So I went to PepBoys Where they do everything for less.. and I mean everything if you find the right one. lol

The part that i went to get was as you can see in the subject ^ up yander is the oil pressure switch. When i got the part it looked right and everything was fine until i got back and started working on this. The part that was already on the car and the repalcement eren;t the same. The one on the car had a thredded spot on the back for a bolt and a wire with an eyelit to connect to it for the resistance reading to throw on your " HOLY MOTHER OF GOD YOUR OIL PRESSURE IS WRONG AND YOU NEED OIL OR THE CAR WILL EXPLODE INTO A MILLION PIECES AND THERE WILL BE BLOOD AND CAR PARTS EVERYWHERE!!! (red oil light)" will come on. the new one did not have this thredded spot in the back.. This became a problem.. So i brought it back and they swore up and down that it was the right part and looked up all of the other years to see if it changed which i knew it wouldn't, and they were all the same.

I worked on my method to fixing this problem and will post pics and a DIY thread on it tomorow if i am successfull. which this is really an easy fix so it shouldn't take long at all now.
