My truck is pouring oil out right above the oil filter and was wondering if it might be the oil sending unit.
Do you

Take a look at the attachments for the oil pressure sender. This is under the distributor so I am not sure it is the issue but I would suggest cleaning off the oil and then starting the engine after you top the oil off and see if you can locate the source.

Here is a guide that can help with this as well:
