[DML] Oil pressure switch replacement

After getting the proper 23mm tools, I pulled the oil pressure 
switch today without any trouble.

After removing it I took a close look at it -- what a piece of junk! 
As Dave S. suggested, it appears to be leaking along the center 
terminal and in disassembling it to learn more about it I'm 
convinced that there are probably not any of these switches 
installed that don't weep.

I also discovered the reason my switch was a little stubborn in 
coming out. The copper sealing washer (crush washer) was missing on 
my switch so it was tightened directly against the lip. It didn't 
appear to be leaking around the lip, however, and it looked to be 
weeping primarily through the center.

I'm not installing that junk switch back in again and I'll take a 
close look at the replacement switch to see how it might be sealed 
up better before installing it. If you have wetness in the area 
where the driver's side muffler bracket attaches to the block, my 
guess is that your swith is also weeping. Like I said, based on its 
construction, I suspect they all weep to some degree.
