I know it's been covered before but I don't know where to find the answer.
My oil sending unit is pegged at 120. From what I have seen here
that means the unit is bad. Is one brand any better then the other?
And it sounds as if it a pretty simple fix.

Super simple fix and I really dont think brand will make much of a difference on this part. The sensor is above where the oil filter connects. A decent size crescent wrench should make short work of it.

AC Delco is recommended, people have had bad luck with other brands

Will very much oil leak as I am putting in the new sending unit? And by the way ,I can get a AC Delco for $60.00
at Advance Auto parts. They have another brand for 40. I think I will go with the Delco. I might do the job tomorrow
so if somebody could get back to me tonight I appreciate.

It will drip out, but not too bad. Wear some safety glasses and don't wear clothes you don't want oil on. Other than that it just takes a bit to get it out, as it's in an ackward place.
