Default 8ba v8 oil pressure sender

I have an oil leak at the point on the 8ba block where the line TO the oil filter attaches to the block. This is at a right angle to, and is located just below the oil pressure sender. Since it is in a very difficult to reach spot, I wanted to ask for information on the thread pitch? I don't want to cause bigger issues by using an improper thread size and pitch. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
