Default Oil temperature probe location and type

Quick question that might save me sometime.

I currently have this probe for oil temperature (circled in the attached photo)

It is a vdo probe/gauge setup and I plan on replacing this with jpi probe for a edm 350 installation.

Does anybody know what size /type this is? Will the jpi probe for oil temp go in the same place? I see two sizes - I can obviously open it and see but thought somebody might have already gone through it and might save me sometime.

Lastly, is there any oil temperature thermocouple type sender that might work with jpi installation or do I have to buy theirs?

Default Oil Temp probe substitute for JPI's 350 EDM

Tec Tweaker,

Did You ever find/Do You know of a substitute for JPI's Oil Temp probe? I'm hoping to find a 'Non JPI' one that will work with my 350 EDM. JPI's probes are too spendy for my tastes.
