Perkins 4-108 Oil Pressure Sender

Where can you purchase a sender for the Perkins?
Is it an 80 PSI or 100PSI sender on the newer 50hp units (1988 vintage)?
I replaced the original sender with a Faria sender from West Marine. This sender went bad in less than 100 hrs. I obviously need somin beefier for the diesel.
Ideas?

Re: Perkins 4-108 Oil Pressure Sender

Sierra Marine makes both 80 and 100psi versions. The replacement looks like the original except that there is no rubber sheath.
