Oil pressure sending unit, '81 305

The only sending unit I can find is the one in the photo above the oil filter with two connections; however, the wiring diagram shows a single connector. Is this my sending unit above the oil filter? If so, what is the other connector for?

The sender you have pictured is the Choke switch. The oil pressure switch for the gauge should be behind the distributor and will have a single blue wire.

Found my problem. Apparently I am missing the majority of my sending unit, haha.
