You may have a fault in the wire harness that goes to the alternator and the oil pressure gauge. I have done a few on the 400E's for that problem. One way to check is to find the wire that goes to the gauge on the back of the cluster using the wiring diagram in the CD we offer. Then cut that wire. If the gauge will fall and then go up when grounded, you have found the problem.
