Question about 1987 Ford F 350
Have to install new oil pressure switch every 4 to 5 months. keeps leaking oil.
Depending on the amount of miles, maintenance records, or how hard the car has been driven either by a previous owner, or by yourself. The engine's main crankshaft bearings or the connecting-rod bearings could be excessively worn.
Also, it could very well be a wiring problem to the sensor and/or computer causing the problem.

The first step is to remove all the parts that are in the way of you being able to remove the valve covers. (Ex.: air intake, loose wires etc.) Then you will need to remove your valve covers (using basic tools) and be very careful to not let anything get on your lifters, which your valve covers protect. Once you have the valve covers off compare the new gaskets to make sure they are the right size. Then remove the old gasket and replace with the new one using a high temp gasket sealant (available at any auto parts store) to attach the gasket to the valve covers. Then tighten down snug and check for leaks after replaced.

I've seen pressure switches rust out and shoot a steady steam of oil out of them, so yes it could cause you to loose two quarts of oil. Book does not mention starter removal:
