4.0 head swap problems? Need help

I have a 87 wrangler it has the 4.2 motor and i just did the 4.0 head swap on it it came out realy good but i have some small problems that i was hopeing you guys would help me with

1. i can't figure out how to rewire the temp sensor the new head the new head has a 4 wire sensor and the old sensor is just on wire and it wont fit in the hole where the new sensor is

is their a way i can rewire it?

2 my oil presher reads a little over half way but it just stays their when i turn on the car i know for a fact it should move when i give it more throttle

can any one tell me how to fix this

3 my tail lights only go on when my car is in the start possition on the key cylinder but when the motor is running they don't work
