Default Oil pressure low 1994 f150xlt 5.8l v8

I have a 1994 F150XLT 5.8L V8 EFI. Ive driven it for about a year now and originally the oil pressure gauge sat straight up and down but now it fluctutes between the "N" in normal and tge low end of the white safe zone box. I was going to try and replace the sending switch but cant seem to find it forward of the oil filter like i saw on youtube. Ive got about 180K miles on this and as far as I know the truck has done nothing but light travel with strick maintenance to the engine. I dont hear any knocking or rattling but the low pressure has me spooked. Oil is nice amber color. No water. A smidge over the full mark and ive been changing it every 3000 miles or sooner. It doesnt do any major hauling heaviest thing its ever had in the back is maybe 400lbs. Just back and forth to work.

It maybe necessary to remove the oil filter to see. Don't try to reuse the removed filter when done. It may leak, just replace it.My bet is on the sender too.Engines will get noisy when the oil pressure is too low.
