Ron - Don't panic yet. Plumb in a good quality mechanical gauge along with 
the current oil light sending unit to see what the oil pressure is really 
like. A gauge with a 270 sweep and a top end reading of 100  psi should do 
it. Now you can compare actual values to the book recommendations and see 
what's next. Wish for a bad oil pressure sending unit! I was horrified when 
I had "0" psi on a 120 H.P. Deere farm tractor. A new sending unit restored 
the pressure back to 60  psi.
