I will second that. When we first fired up this 69 B, its oil pressure
dropped to zero within 5 minutes, according to the electrical gauge. Gary
got hold of one of the later plumbed-in gauges, and now it reads 50 psi
cold, 25 hot at idle (this motor has 75K miles). The gauge is visually
identical, so it's a straight swap (if you can reach behind the dash -- a
big if).

If you're near Mountain View, CA,
