the oil light while cranking is nothing more than a bulb check. that is the way the system worked at that time.
before you do the pump, check the fuse and see if it is blown. even if it is, the pump may be drawing too much current.

Oil guage shows no pressure unless cranking and then drops..fuse good to fuel pump..going to change the relay now..hope the oil pump isn't bad as well...guage rises and then drops...
