As far as the oil press. sender goes, see my post on 6/24/20 (oil pressure really low-part 2) , it covers some of this topic. I repaired mine (not for the faint of heart!) during covid shutdown (was bored, needed a challenge!) and the gauge read low anyway. Otherwise new one is roadster only (not 240Z) On gauge working on start position, not on run pos., try to check 12V supply to gauge, maybe ign. sw. issue? My experiences are w/ a 1966, 67 1/2 may be slightly different. Since repairing sender, testing ,and driving, gauge has worked as well as can be expected ( for electric oil gauge), will go up to 45-55 psi (approx) depending on conditions.
