Default High/low pressure switch/sensor location

I have a 2003 F350 7.3L and I need help locating the high/low pressure sensor/switch to replace it. My ac works but it gets hot occasionally and it will only kick in if you rev the engine usually over 2k rpms. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a clutch clearance issue or weak clutch and coil.

You can see it there are shims you can remove to get the clutch gap back
