Clearly, or I'm a lot stronger than I thought...but I don't think that was the case. It's only an 1/8" sensor, so the torque I was turning it at with the 3/4" wrench (which is like 10" long) was probably a good amount more than I was thinking it was.
Here's to hoping they can get me a new sensor and bushing real quick...
I'm just glad I'm able to install it on the coolant/thermostat housing instead of having to remove the block sensor, which A) I can barely see, B) probably can't remove due to the header flange and C) will pour coolant out.
For the oil pressure sensor, I got the old one out, but the new one has a hex that is too wide and causes it to collide with the intake manifold, so I have to get a few different fittings (nipple to coupler to elbow to a tee; will run the stock pressure sensor too, as that sends 12V to the choke). I ordered them for pickup at Advance Auto, ready in 30 minutes, at 3 or 3:30 PM.
I still haven't gotten an "Order Ready for Pickup" email - or even an order confirmation. I'm calling them in the morning to see if they'd care to do their ****ing job.
