for How you can install the oil sending switch?" I take it that we are talking about an oil pressure switch wich located near the oil filter?

The right way to do this with a special socket or boxwrench, sometimes they are easy to reach and sometimes they put up a fight. Make sure you have the right sender remove the old one, install some plumbers tape on the thread, finger start the sender and tighten it, (not too tight) start the engine and check for leaks
