Oil Light on sharp left turns

1986 300E - When I make a hard left turn from a stop or on a freeway ramp, the oil light is starting to come on. Dipstick tells me I am down approximately 1/2 a quart but still within the guidelines. Sounds dumb, but I mean halfway between the two red plastic pieces on the dipstick.

At a stop, the pressure reading is below 2 but above 1, and it jumps right up to three with any acceleration. With 185,000 miles is this an indicator of the oil pump going south?

As a side note, getting intermittent lights from the ABS.
