Oil sending unit/switch repair

Hello,
I am attempting to repair our 1993 YJ 2.5L as a surprise for my husband. The oil sender threads are broken off in the block, probably happened when the motor mount broke. He swears that there was a brass 90 degree fitting somewhere in the mix, but so far I do not see anything like that on the Jeep. I have a new switch and sending unit, and a new motor mount cradle on the way from Brown Dog.
My question; am I missing something? Is there a brass fitting? I checked the repair book, but there is not really a picture of that area. Is it possible to find a picture anywhere on the internet? Our local Jeep dealer had nothing to help me out.
Any help would be much appreciated, he will be so happy to have the Jeep back when he returns from working on the road :-)

Hi Russ,
Did you have the brass 90 fitting on yours?
Thanks for your reply...

hi Karen,yes it was the 90 on it.I was going to rebuild the engine but when I pulled the head I saw that it was boared 50 over so I put a 2.5 crate in it.I left the busted part in the old block but do'nt think it would be much to use an easy out to get your's out.like I said take what you have to NAPA or Orielys and they can fix you up.good luck...russ

Here it is. Found it at Autozone. Thanks for the good advice. Hope someone else will find the photo helpful someday.
