What tool to remove oil pressure sending unit?

After tapping the pan, I took a good look at the oil pressure sending unit. After removing the electrical sender, the actual stock sender itself looks very, very large, and doesn't appear to tbe hex shaped for a deep socket.

Is there a special tool for removing this sender on my 1995 GT? Or, just get some pliars up there and start pulling?

you just need a wrench like twister said to grip the bar that extends out and another to loosen the sender from the bar. Use teflon

Ok, you know how you just said that the sending unit is attached to the bar?

Well, is that bar supposed to be completely tight because mine can twist forward and backwards. If it's not supposed to be able to twist that way, can I remove it and put new teflon tape on it without having to drain the oil?

*TheMolarMass, I believe the wrench you need is 9/16". You have to crawl underneath your car for MUCH easier access.
