On 5pw people usually drill and tap the oil cooler bolt for oil pressure sensor.

For oil temp, I replaced the oil level switch with an aluminium adaptor with a 1/8NPT tapping for the sensor to screw into. Works well.

Sorry meant to add what Jek said. Alternatively on my 5vy I drilled/tapped the sump at what I think is a fairing mounting point. It's thicker there but still less than I'd like but I wanted to retain the oil level sensor at the time.

No problem, if you need a drawing of the oil temp sensor adaptor I made up, let me know.
