Default oil pressure fitting before hanging engine?

I've read on other posts that before hanging the engine you should definitely install the fitting for oil pressure because it's very hard to install it after hanging. Is this the fitting? Mine is a Mattituck IO360.

Excellent thanks!! Is there anything else I should look at installing? When my cowl shows up I want to hang the engine to start fitting it.

You may want to order 3 of them. Oil pressure, fuel pressure and manifold pressure. Also there is a special t fitting for the fuel pump

Default Oil Pressure Fitting

Note that some late manufacture engines have a port on the aft side of the accessory case.
Another option is to use the forward end of the oil gallery which is much easier to access. This will result in oil pressure readings approximately 10 psi less than at accessory case. New Cessna's use the forward end of the gallery for oil pressure connection.
